About this product
- DescriptionIncluding masterpieces from every period of Chinese art, the Chinese collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is celebrated as one of the finest outside Asia. This catalogue presents a selection of works ranging in date from the second millennium B.C.E. to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The selection is representative of the central traditions of Chinese art--ancient jade carving and ritual bronzes, ceramics, Buddhist sculpture, scroll painting, lacquer and textiles--and includes world-famous works such as A Solitary Temple in Clearing Mountains attributed to Li Cheng (c. 919-967) and the 12th-century Guanyin of the Southern Seas. Each work is accompanied by a short essay exploring its significance and aesthetic qualities, and an introductory essay provides an overview of Chinese art, focusing particularly on collecting and aesthetic taste. This book can be enjoyed t only as a stunning visual record of these masterworks but also as an informative introduction to Chinese art.
