Course Description

The course explores the visual arts of Asia from prehistory to 21st century, with foremost emphasis on China and Japan, and some references to India, Korea, Tibet and Southeast Asia. Lectures will explore the representative works of painting, sculpture, architecture, calligraphy, ceramics and other crafts and decorative arts. In order to examine the historical significance of Asian art and culture from a global perspective, one lecture will be devoted to the mutual influences of Western and Chinese/Japanese art and aesthetics. Throughout our studies, a special emphasis will be given to the issues of technique and materials, socio-political conditions, art market and patronage, and religious and philosophical currents specific to each period and culture.
