Richard Lin bibliography was regarded and marked in art history, Dictionary of International Biography Cambridge, Oxford Companion to 20th Century Art, and Who’s Who in Art.
Lin’s “White Series,” the very conciseness and immediacy of Zen, making a lasting impression in Western art circles, earning a great compliment from Joan Miró, the eminent Spanish painter and sculptor, declared that “Lin is unmatched in the world of white color.” In the 60's to 70's, when engaged in minimalism art creation, he made a great contribution to grant "modern" meaning to the "margin" tradition of Chinese paintings.
Lin was invited to several important exhibitions in Europe since 1960s, such as the Documenta III in Kassel, Carnegie International in Pittsburgh and the Brooklyn Museum, New York. His works are collected by many prestigious public collections in Europe and USA included the Tate Gallery, London. Lin’s legacy continues to grow even after his death in 2011.
