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.
