Art of China and Japan: Ritual Bronzes to Zen Gardens
ARHA 279
Fall 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CEAS 273

This course surveys major modes and styles of artistic representation and expression in East Asia, with a focus on China and Japan. Because of the extraordinary early influence of Chinese civilization on its East Asian neighbors, we will consider not only the impact of religion, thought, and social-economic force on the arts of each country, but also patterns of reception and transformation. Major topics include literati painting, calligraphy, pictorial carving and sculpture, court art, Zen Buddhism, ceramics, and wood-block prints.
