This volume studies the evolution of
Chinese art during the Qin and Han Dynasties, The Three Kingdoms,
Eastern and Western Jin, and the Northern and Southern Dynasties. It
traces the initial artistic vocabularies of Chinese calligraphy as well
as the rapid development of the performing and the decorative arts.
A
General History of Chinese Art comprises six volumes with a total of
nine parts spanning from the Prehistoric Era until the 3rd
year of Xuantong during the Qing Dynasty (1911). The work provides a
comprehensive compilation of in-depth studies of the development of art
throughout the subsequent reign of Chinese dynasties and explores the
emergence of a wide range of artistic categories such as but not limited
to music, dance, acrobatics, singing, story telling, painting,
calligraphy, sculpture, architecture, and crafts. Unlike previous
reference books, A General History of Chinese Art offers a
broader overview of the notion of Chinese art by asserting a more
diverse and less material understanding of arts, as has often been the
case in Western scholarship.
