The art of Southeast Asia; Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Burma, Java, Bali by Philip S Rawson( Book )

52 editions published between 1967 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a wealth of information about the history, traditions, and religious beliefs of Southeast Asia, Philip Rawson throughly and authoritatively surveys a vast array of works of art and crafts from the region. Since prehistoric times, the countries of Southeast Asia have created a unique melange of indigenous art and the art of neighboring India and China. From the bronze tombs of the Dong-son people in 500 BC, to the mystical, dramatic form of Indonesia puppetry in current day Java and Bali, from architectural wonders such as Borobudur, to a host of pagodas, shrines, and temples, Rawson explores a medley of Southeast Asian art. He offers an astonishing array of treasures and elucidates a culture in which there are no artistic boundaries

"With the unassuming title of Ceramics, Rawson has presented a very clear, orderly and thought-provoking guide for discussion. He provides words for those nebulous, or nonexistent, thoughts that students avoid talking about in critiques, and our professional associates talk all around, using whatever art language is being worn out at the time--'Is your work postmodernist yet?' Now we have no excuse to complain that there is no vocabulary."--National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Newsletter

Sculpture by Philip S Rawson( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philip Rawson, a distinguished academic and author, practiced as a sculptor all of his life. Sculpture, his final book, completes the trilogy begun with his classic works, Drawing and Ceramics. As in those earlier volumes, Rawson provides a clear, factual description of the underlying principles and structural techniques of the art. Although Rawson discusses sculptures from many places and periods - including Africa, Asia, Greece, Medieval and Renaissance Europe, and twentieth-century Europe and America - Sculpture is not a history as such. Rather, it is an original analysis of sculpture as a fundamental and integral form of human "language" capable of conveying a variety of different insights, offering a wealth of cultural and symbolic meaning. In the course of this analysis, Sculpture explores the full range of expressive techniques available to the sculptor today. Rawson's intent is to reveal possible modes of sculptural thought for practitioners and to enable the nonexpert to better understand and appreciate the emotional and intellectual content of any work
