Worshiping the Ancestors Chinese Commemorative Portraits
Author: Jan Stuart, Evelyn Sakakida Rawski

This richly illustrated book is the first to explore in depth the artistic, historical, and religious significance of these remarkable paintings and to place them with other types of commemorative portraiture.
