Chinese Art, Paperback / softback Book

Chinese Art Paperback / softback

Part of the World of Art series


At a time when interest in China has never been greater, this revised edition of Mary Tregear's authoritative survey of the Chinese visual arts will be welcomed by art lovers, students and travellers alike.

Generously illustrated and eminently readable, it covers not only bronzes, jades, calligraphy and painting, but also Buddhist sculpture, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, 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 twentieth-century art.

An invaluable chronology of Chinese historical periods is included, together with six maps.
