Description

This catalogue accompanies an ambitious exhibition, held at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004-2005, of a substantial body of archaeological objects from China that demonstrates the wealth and cultural breadth of the Chinese dynasties between the Han and the Tang. Six essays are included, beginning with an introductory history by Watt (chairman of the Met's department of Asian art) and including essays on Central Asian metalwork found in China and Buddhist art in China. Three essays are included on the arts of the Silk Road; the interest in a variety of arts from distant lands is a central theme of the exhibition. The catalogue is oversize, 9.25x12.25", and includes a series of maps and a chronology. Distributed by Yale U. Press under ISBN 0-300-10487-1.
