A beautiful novella in 50 short chapters and 10 pictures about the life of Bada Shanren, the most influential Chinese painter of all times. In 1626, Bada Shanren is born into the Chinese royal family. When the old Ming Dynasty crumbles, he becomes an artist, committed to capturing the essence of nature with a single brushstroke. Then the rulers of the new Qing Dynasty discover his identity and Bada must feign madness to escape. "A powerful, poetic book. A two-hour enchantement.” Kulturspiegel "Inexplicable, almost magical ... Weihe's sketches - created in a few words - trigger the imagination of the reader." Berner Zeitung Why Peirene chose to publish this book: Fact and fiction arrive at a perfect union in this exquisite novella. A beautifully story about the quiet determined pursuit of inspiration, this is a charming and uplifting book. After reading it, I looked at the world a little differently.” Meike Ziervogel, Publisher
