Collectors of Chinese painting have no doubt, like myself, been brought to a realization of the fact, that a real acquaintance with the history and significance of this art, as far as it nowadays can be reached, must be based to a larger extent on historical records and writings by Chinese critics of the last thousand years than on the scanty products of ancient painting that still may be seen. However valuable the latter may be, they are far from sufficient as a basis for a comprehension of the historical evolution and still less so for an appreciation of the aesthetic ideals, which served as guidance and inspiration for the great painters of various periods.
