This introductory survey covers Chinese art from prehistoric times to the end of the 18th century. Particular attention will be given to the four basic media of Chinese art (bronze, sculpture, painting, and ceramics) and to their relationships to the culture that produced them.
The course is designed to nurture an understanding of Chinese material culture in relations to its historical and religious-philosophical contexts.
