RARELY-EXHIBITED ASIAN FINE ART COMES TO THE U.S.
Goo San Sui Imports Ancient Treasures of the National Palace Museum
NEW YORK, NEW YORK - August 11, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) -- While many
aspects of Asian Culture have made their way into the heart of Western
Civilization - the food, the tea, the pottery, the films, the fabric -
Westerners have not traditionally had the opportunity to feast their eyes
on Ancient Asian Fine Art. This is an Art far different from those scroll
paintings abundantly found on the streets of any major urban Chinatown.
Now, Goo San Sui, Inc. (www.goosansui.com) and the National Palace Museum
(Taipei) have collaborated to introduce exactingly reproduced Ancient
Chinese Scroll Paintings to the U.S.
These exquisite paintings, dating as far back as the Tang Dynasty (618 -
906 A.D.) represent some of the finest and most representative works from
China s heritage of renowned landscape and still life Masters.
These works are seldom, if ever exhibited, even in China, due to the age
and fragile nature of the original Chinese Scrolls. Traditionally
commissioned and owned by Emperors, it was not uncommon for many delicate
masterpieces to be destroyed as a Dynasty came to an end. Later, the
fraction of paintings that survived destruction were collected and
venerated by the wealthiest Chinese art patrons who understood their
unique and extraordinary nature.
Today, these paintings are being exactingly reproduced through license
from the National Palace Museum, using traditional materials and applying
ancient production processes to reproduce authentic-quality, full-color,
grand-size format masterpieces.
These works will be available through designers, high end retail
establishments and design centers, such as the Smith & Watson New York
Design Center located at 200 Lexington Avenue in New York City.
