China: Dawn of a Golden Age, 200-750 AD
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2004 - 392 pages
"The integration of foreign motifs and styles with the traditional arts of China is the focus of this catalogue and the landmark exhibition that it accompanies, "China: Dawn of a Golden Age, 200-750 AD," held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition compromises some three hundred objects, most of them excavated in recent years and many never before seen outside China. Each work is discussed in terms of its aesthetic qualities and art-historical significance and in the context of the philosophical and religious ideas that are reflected in iconography and style." "In an introductory essay, James C. Y. Wyatt, Brooke Russell Astor Chairman, Department of Asian Art, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, discusses the art and history of the entire period. Essays by both Chinese and Western scholars explore important aspects of metalwork, glass, and textiles, as well as the development of Buddhist art in China."--BOOK JACKET.
