Book summary

At a time when interest in China has never been greater, this revised edition of Mary Tregear's survey of the Chinese visual arts should be welcomed by art lovers, students and travellers alike. Generously illustrated and readable, it covers not only bronzes, jades, calligraphy and painting, but also Buddhist sculpture, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, lacquer, garden design and architecture. For the revised edition, all Chinese names, places, and terms have been romanized to current international usage. Throughout, information has been updated in view of recent finds, and the book contains new illustrations, a revised introduction and a new final chapter on 20th-century art. A chronology of Chinese historical periods is included, together with six maps. [via]
