Summary, etc.: Down the muddy waters of the Yangtze River and into the seedy backrooms of "The Hall of Eternal Splendor," through the raucous glamour of prewar Shanghai and the bohemian splendor of 1920s Paris, and back to a China ripped apart by civil war and teetering on the brink of revolution: this novel tells the story of Pan Yuliang, one of the most talented--and provocative--Chinese artists of the twentieth century. Jennifer Cody Epstein's epic brings to life the woman behind the lush, Cezannesque nude self-portraits, capturing with lavish detail her life in the brothel and then as a concubine to a Republican official who would ultimately help her find her way as an artist. Moving with the tide of historical events, "The Painter from Shanghai" celebrates a singularly daring painting style--one that led to fame, notoriety, and, ultimately, a devastating choice: between Pan's art and the one great love of her life.--From publisher description.
