Overview

Drawing upon and reviewing current Chinese and Japanese material available, as well as the western publications and interpretations, this text explores 800 years of Chinese arts comprehensively. Following styles and motifs as they developed within and across mediums, as well as from one geographical area to another, Watson considers architecture, painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts. The text is arranged by successive topics, defining period style, and aiming at satisfying the curiosity of those who meet Chinese art on a historical rather than an acquisitive level. The book aims to inform the student and the connoisseur.
