China at the Court of the Emperors presents almost two hundred masterpieces, various in form and rich in beauty, coming from thirty-two museums and institutes in Shaanxi, Henan, Gansu, and Jiangsu provinces, many of them never seen in the West before. It examines the vast period from the Eastern Han dynasty (25?220) through the Tang (618?907), during which Chinese civilization underwent radical transformation. As a matter of fact, Tang China synthesized foreign and indigenous elements that had been present for centuries, thus creating a new, distinctive, and extraordinary cosmopolitan civilization, made possible by tolerance?a message as important today as it was 1,500 years ago. The book includes essays by some of the foremost experts in the field, including Roderick Whitfield (School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London), Felix Schoeber (University of Westminster, London), Lillian Lan-ying Tseng (Yale University), Nicola di Cosmo (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton), Stefano Zacchetti (UniversitÓ Ca? Foscari, Venice), and Chao-Hui Jenny Liu (New York University).

Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. The Han Dynasty marks the start of recorded Chinese history and the Tang Dynasty is considered the cultural highpoint of Chinese Culture; the road between these two chronological markers is a snapshot of the Chinese people finding and developing their own artistic voice. The Han Dynasty works displayed here are often crude, highlighted by an elegant simplicity, or a nascent mastery; by contrast, the Tang works reveal artistic mastery in its full flower, confident in its expression and looking outwards to new challenges and ideas. The influence of Buddhist and foreign philosophies becomes increasingly obvious by the end of the Tang rule. By the time of the later Sung Dynasty, the baroque, effusive ebullience of the Tang artists was being derided as heavy-handed and obvious; nevertheless, as this work effortlessly shows, the Tang Dynasty has every right to be nominated as the cultural high point of the nation's artistry. 9788861306813.
