As the blurb says it’s a demonstration of realism in art. Chinese too, which I have in recent years, to be largely ‘hysterical’ – that is, in the original meaning of the term. Perhaps realism too is relative, subject to one’s perception. I don’t like either, I prefer the ‘realism’ of imperfection in art. There something unnerving about perfection and/or the seeking of it. As for modern Chines art that screams in anxiety and angst at the viewer – no thank you ! I close my eyes and move on. I do like / love Vermeer though. Ironic ?
