Chinese art

documentary heritage
  • Description

    This beautifully produced book, a triumph of the printer's art, is, in effect, a survey of Old Chinese culture for a period of four thousand years, beginning with the Shang Dynasty and ranging from archaic religious bronzes and baked clay ware to exquisitely carved jades and ivories, metal work, paintings, tapestries and embroideries, as well as a variety of smaller objets d'art.--publishers blurb.
