This bilingual catalogue with full colour illustrations is published in conjunction with the exhibition "Her Distinguished Brushwork - An exhibition featuring paintings by the seventeenth- century artist Li Yin", which features a selection of paintings by the woman painters, such as Li Yin, Wen Chu and Cai Han, collected at the Art Museum, CUHK, the Shanghai Museum and the Palace Museum at Beijing. The catalog interrogates issues faced by seventeenth-century Chinese women painters: how did they construct their artistic personae and how did their works bring benefits to them and their families?
