In her book, The Art of Resistance: Painting by Candlelight in Mao's China, Shelley Drake Hawks, Ph.D. tells the story of six persecuted Chinese ink painters who spiritually upheld the soul of art in this soulless time by continuing to paint in their underground world. The author spent twenty years conducting interviews and researching rare materials to uncover the artists' stories as well as their art.  She received both the Millard Meiss Publication Award from the College Art Association and the Best Art Book of 2019 from the International Convention of Asia Scholars, University of Leiden, Netherlands.
