This introductory chapter discusses the two creative individuals who served important but very different roles in the evolution of Chinese culture: Fou Lei and Huang Binhong. It outlines the differences and similarities between these two men, although most of the focus is on Huang Binhong, who is known for his landscape paintings. Fou Lei, on the other hand, was best known as a translator.
