I have used Sullivan's Arts of China in my class for thirty years. No other historian of Chinese art today commands such a wide range of knowledge as Michael Sullivan. I needed this book for an Art of China and Japan class at university and I would highly recommend this book if only for the beautiful art in it it has great information about the time period, art styles and techniques used and their history, the artist and much more.
Sullivan explores this background so deftly and relevantly that the arts, as an expression of the times in which they took shape, come vibrantly alive. Hardcover: 320 pages.
So much of China's art in the twentieth century has to do with artistic (and political) ideas from the West that is is appropriate that one of its first comprehensive histories should be written by a Western scholar―especially one who has known personally many of China's leading artistic figures of the last fifty years.
