- Publisher's Summary
- A generously illustrated introduction to 7,000 years of Chinese art - from Neolithic pottery and jade to contemporary video, installation and performance media. By placing the arts in context, the authors introduce a dynamic and continually evolving tradition, rather than a sequence of isolated museum masterpieces. Although chronological in sequence, it introduces relevant themes for each era that will deepen understanding of, and appreciation for, what the authors describe as 'the most abundantly productive, continuous artistic culture in the history of the world.'.
