Chinese Art Values Imitation?

7 Apr 2003 (Mon)

CURIOUSLY, WHILE WESTERN ART traditionally celebrates innovation and new ways of depicting real life, Chinese art seems to value imitation. Chang DaQian, often called the “oriental Picasso”, was famous and acclaimed for his numerous forgeries during his lifetime.

A friend once said something to this effect, “When art has reached its zenith, there’s nothing more to innovate or do except to try to emulate what has already been achieved. This is what has happened to Chinese art – it has been perfected after thousands of years of civilisation.”

Is this true, or just an excuse for not innovating?
