The Traditional Arts of Japan|
Fall 2008 not offered
This survey of the arts of Japan will emphasize painting, sculpture, and architecture from neolithic times to the mid-19th century. The course will stress the relevance of Japan's social and religious history to the formation and development of its arts. Consideration will also be given to the manner in which artistic influences from China and Korea helped to shape Japanese art history and to the processes whereby such influences were modified to produce a new, vital, and distinctive artistic tradition.
