HISTORY OF ART 4810

THE ARTS OF CHINA
Professor Christina Mathison

The distinct and influential visual culture of China reflects the dynamic periods in China’s history. This course examines the art and history of China thematically and chronologically exploring the culture’s artistic practice in religious, ritual, political, and courtly contexts. Beginning with early pottery-making and jade-carving cultures and proceeding into the twenty-first century, students will analyze the main artistic trends over time and wrestle with the related issues of power, authenticity, and politics.
