About

The Chinese Art Book presents a definitive selection of 300 works, from the earliest dynasties to the new generation of contemporary artists enlivening the global art world today.

From painting, calligraphy, ceramics and bronzes, to contemporary installations, photography and performance art; outstanding examples from all periods are showcased side by side, to create fascinating combinations linked with detailed cross-references.

Also includes an informative introductory essay, comprehensive glossary and an illustrated time line placing the works in their political and cultural contexts.

"...A gorgeously laid out overview in which classics like Chen Rong's Nine Dragons, painted in 1244 are juxtaposed with contemporary artists from heroic Ai Weiwei to the fireworks of Cai Guo-Qiang... Engage with the art of China past and present..."—The Guardian

"The Chinese Art Book... is a beautifully-produced pictorial record of Chinese art... A book with such a vast timespan is well-placed to give a healthy sense of perspective."—The Asian Review of Books

"...A stunning new compendium, The Chinese Art Book, carefully put together by Colin Mackenzie, Katie Hill and Jeffrey Moser, deploys a surprisingly effective strategy for making both current and contemporary works come to life..."—Town and Country Magazine
