Body and face in Chinese visual culture( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Traditionally the "Chinese body" was understood as a totality and explained by sweeping comparisons of the differences that distinguished Chinese examples from their western counterparts. Recently, scholars have argued that we must look at particular examples of Chinese images of the body and explore their intrinsic conceptual complexity and historical specificity." "By charting multiple, specific bodies and faces, the twelve contributors to this volume seek to explain a general Chinese body and face conditioned by indigenous traditions and dynamics of social interaction. All the chapters are historical case studies and investigate particular images, such as Han dynasty tomb figurines; Buddhist texts and illustrations; pictures of deprivation, illness, deformity, and ghosts; clothing; formal portraiture; and modern photographs and films. All of them are based on close examination of textual, visual, and archaeological evidence. But the authors use their findings to illuminate broader changes in representations of the body and face in various religious, political, and cultural contexts. From the diversity of art forms and historical periods studied, as well as the differences in research methods and analytical approaches, there emerges a more complex picture of ways that the visual culture of the body and face in China has served to depict the living, memorialize the dead, and present the unrepresentable in art."--Jacket

A companion to Chinese art by Martin Joseph Powers( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume offers a rich insight into China's social and political institutions, religious practices, and intellectual traditions alongside Chinese art history, theory, and criticism. It brings together an international team of scholars from East and West, whose contributions range from an overview of premodern theory, to those exploring calligraphy, fine painting, sculpture, personal accessories, and more. In addition, the Companion reflects on social and cultural issues, such as the challenges of comparative history, the role of the artist in society, the contested role of gender in art production, different theories of nature that have evolved over time, and articulates the direction in which the field of Chinese art history is moving. In promoting a comparative understanding of China's long record of cultural production, this volume provides students and scholars of both Asian and non-Asian art history with an exceptional guide to the history of art in China, from its earliest incarnations to the present day. -- from back cover
