Who Is Dong Kingman?

May 11, 2009

A reader of this blog wrote in yesterday in response to my post on Charles Reid's books and recommend that people read Dong Kingman's book. I assumed Chris meant Dong Kingman's Watercolors.  I'm waiting to hear from Chris if that's correct (a couple of you have asked me to find out). In the meantime I can tell you that's a good book, though I read it many years ago and isn't a book I have so I can't give you specifics on it.

If you would like to know more about Dong Kingman you can google about on the web, but I recommend that you go first to Danny Gregory's blog and check out his September 20, 2008 post on Kingman, which includeds a wonderful short film about the artist that I'm sure you'll enjoy. (Danny recommends the book that I've given you a link to above.)

    I KNEW I’d seen another film somewhere! Yes the book IS Dong Kingman Watercolors.
    Check out the site too
    I got my copy of the book at a showing of his paintings and he signed it for me. I was in heaven!

    There’s an excellent earlier book, The Water Colors of Dong Kingman and how the artist works by Alan Gruskin. And a later book Dong Kingman, Portraits of Cities. One can also go to for more information on the artist. – Dong Kingman, Jr.

    Dong Kingman Jr., I’m assuming this artist we’ve been talking about is your father! Well thank you for writing in and sharing additional info with us about this talented painter!
