Cultural Identity and the Making of Modern Taiwanese Painting During the Japanese Colonial Period (1895--1945).
ProQuest, 2008 - 370 pages
Chapter One outlines Taiwan's history and Sino-centric cultural development before the Japanese colonial era. Chapter Two discusses the difficulties confronting aspiring Taiwanese artists during Japanese rule and examines popular new themes, such as the artist's studio, the self-portrait and the family portrait, which shed light on the fluid construction of new cultural identities. Chapter Three examines artworks and writings by leading expatriate Japanese painters and commentators touching on the question of Taiwan's cultural distinctiveness. Chapter Four addresses the emergence among the Taiwanese of an ever-maturing consciousness of Taiwan and themselves as a distinctive, integral whole in relation to the colonial mother country, the ancestral motherland and the world.
