Summary
"Asian Art is the first comprehensive anthology of important primarydocuments U{u031B}U{u031B}U{u031B}- from inscriptions and imperialdecrees to travelers' accounts and writings by artists-and the very best contemporary scholarship that has beenproduced on Asian art history. This unprecedented volume offers aportrait of the rich artistic traditions in China, Japan, Korea, India, and Southeast Asia. Across time periods, media, cultural contexts, and geography, this volume traces several thousand years of Asian art, from theterracotta armies of the First Emperor of Qin to latetwentieth-century installation art. Featuring accessibleintroductory material for each extract and arranged in aneasy-to-navigate chronological structure, it will prove anessential companion to any study of Asian art history."--Back cover
