Synopsis: The Chinese Art Book is a beautifully packaged, authoritative, and unprecedented overview of Chinese art from its earliest dynasties to the contemporary generation of artists enlivening today's art world. 300 works represent every form of Chinese visual art, including painting, calligraphy, sculpture, ceramics, figurines, jade, bronze, gold and silver, photography, video, installation, and performance art.

Full of surprises for readers of all levels, The Chinese Art Book breaks new ground by pairing works that speak to one another in unexpected ways, enlightening historical, stylistic and cultural connections. Concise descriptive essays place each work in context, while cross-references lead the reader on a fascinating journey through Chinese art history.

The Chinese Art Book features an introductory essay by Colin Mackenzie, Senior Curator of Chinese Art at the Nelson-Akins Museum of Art, along with an accessible summary of Chinese political and cultural history, a comprehensive glossary defining technical terms, and an illustrated timeline.

About the Author: Colin Mackenzie (Introduction) is Senior Curator of Chinese Art at the Nelson-Akins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri. Keith Pratt (painting and calligraphy to 1949) is Emeritus Professor of East Asian Studies at the University of Durham. Jeffrey Moser (plastic arts to 1949) is the Assistant Professor of East Asian Art History at McGill University. Katie Hill (contemporary art after 1949) is Director of the Office of Contemporary Chinese Art, Deputy Editor of the Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, and consultant lecturer at Sotheby's Institute of Art.

Book Description Ein kompakter, dezidierter Überblick über die wesentlichen Strömungenn der chinesischen Kunst von den frühesten Dynastien bis heute. Rund 300 wundervolle Aufnahmen von kostbaren Schätzen aus allen Disziplinen der Kunst und des Kunstgewerbes dokumentieren die lange Tradition der chinesischen Kunst. Von Kalligrafien und Textilien über Holzschnitt, Malerei und Keramik bis hin zu Fotografie und Installation reicht die Palette, und sie beeindruckt durch ihre Qualität und die erstaunlichen Kombinationen und Verbindungen, die sich durch Gegenüberstellungen ergeben. 5000 Jahre Kunstgeschichte auf den Punkt gebracht, fachlich versiert dargelegt und in herrlichen Bildern anschaulich gemacht - chinesische Kunst zum Blättern und Staunen, in ihren gesellschaftspolitischen Kontext gestellt, mit Glossar und Zeitstrang, welche die Orientierung erleichtern - mehr kann man nicht verlangen.
