This amazing book published by New Star Press is dedicated to farmer paintings, a genre originally practised by rural women to portray their life or decorate their houses. More specifically, this title deals with farmer paintings from the county of Dongfeng (Jilin province), which are famous for their bright colours and geometrical patterns. The paintings are similar to the work of some Modern Western artists, particularly reminiscent of the work of Matisse and Picasso. In recent years they have received a lot of attention from artists and collectors around the world.
