For courses in Far Eastern Art and survey courses in Chinese Art History.This text discusses Chinese art within a variety of contexts-such as archaeological, cultural, historical, social, and ritual/religious. Organized both chronologically and thematically, it covers a full historical span-from the Neolithic era to contemporary art, and includes a wide range of media and settings for art-from elite to popular. An emphasis on the dynamic processes that effect the history of Chinese art: social, economic, political competition, urbanization, markets and tastes, and quests for cultural authority, allows specific works of art to be discussed in extensive detail, while setting them within larger explanatory narratives.
