Mark Tobey and Teng Baiye: Seattle / Shanghai is the first book to explore artistic and intellectual exchanges between Chinese artist Teng Baiye (1900–1980) and his American contemporary Mark Tobey (1890–1976). Essays by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker and David Clarke consider Teng’s influence as both a cultural interpreter and an artistic practitioner on the development of Tobey’s distinctive artistic practice and — through Tobey — on the discourse on abstraction in midcentury American art.
