ART 170 - Art of the East I: China

Cross-Listed as ASIA 170 
This course introduces the art and visual culture of China from the Neolithic era to the twenty-first century. Through this survey, students will engage with a broad array of media, including jade carvings, Buddhist cave painting, calligraphy, monumental landscape paintings, ceramics, modern graphic media, and contemporary installations. Lectures and readings will teach methods of formal visual analysis as well as the historical context of each work. While examining the specific cultural, social, economic, and political functions of Chinese art and objects, we will think critically about  different ways in which scholars write the artistic history of China. Fall semester. (4 Credits)
