The Art of Li-lan: A World Achieved 
by Carter Ratcliff
192 pages
105 color plates
Hudson Hills Press

Celebrated poet and art critic, Carter Ratcliff, joins acclaimed artist Li-lan at Rizzoli NYC to celebrate the publication of the first major monograph on this American painter entitled The Art of Li-lan: A World Achieved. A solo exhibition opening April 3, 2014 at Jason McCoy Gallery will accompany this publication, with a bespoke special edition of the monograph and signed limited edition print.

Born in New York to the gallerist Helen Wimmer Gee and Modernist painter Yun Gee, Li-lan was exposed from a young age to cultural sophistication that matured into a unique art form. Through Carter Ratcliff's extensive research, a sensitive and penetrating narrative guides us through a gentle but hard-fought life of artistic accomplishment. Firmly rooted in the culture of postwar New York, Li-lan is portrayed within the fabric of the American experience, while unfolding her own identity outside of New York in Japan and her father's homeland of China. Li-lan has exhibited extensively in America and abroad and in the collections of The Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD; Guild Hall Museum, East Hampton, NY; Heckscher Museum, Huntington, NY; Modern Art Museum, Toyama, Japan; Ohara Museum of Art, Kurashiki, Japan; The Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, NY; San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego, CA; The Sezon Museum of Modern Art, Karuizawa, Japan; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA; Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina, Greensboro, NC; and The William Benton Museum of Art, Storrs, CT. She is represented by her longtime dealers Tina Keng of the Tina Keng Gallery, Taipei and Beijing and Jason McCoy of Jason McCoy Gallery, New York.

Carter Ratcliff is an honored poet, art writer, teacher, and lecturer, who has published extensively for art journals, institutions, and museums worldwide. His books include monographs on Marisol, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Richard Pousette-Dart, John Singer Sargent, Leon Polk Smith, Andy Warhol, and many others.
