The golden age of Chinese archaeology : celebrated discoveries from the People's Republic of China( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last fifty years, archaeological discoveries have altered traditional beliefs on the formation and development of the civilization of ancient China. This book and the exhibition that it accompanies cover the period from 5000 BCE to the 10th-century C.E. presenting more than 170 masterpieces in jade, stone, ivory bone, pottery, bronze, lacquer, bamboo, gold, and silver. Together these astonishing objects demonstrate that highly advanced artistic cultures originated in and flowered throughout a vast area. Earlier generations of scholars believed that a much smaller area, the Yellow River Valley, was the principal source and locus of Chinese civilization."--Jacket

Hokusai and Hiroshige : great Japanese prints from the James A Michener Collection, Honolulu Academy of Arts by Hokusai Katsushika( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the 1800s, when the artists Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige lived and worked, commoners enjoyed the numerous amenities of Edo (Tokyo), the world's largest city (pop. ca. 800,000). They launched businesses, perfected crafts, gained leisure time and literacy, traveled a coherent system of safe roads, and enjoyed art, poetry, a seemingly limitless taste for novelty, and the income to indulge them." "Ukiyo-e prints - 'pictures of the floating world' - reflect the lives of the Edo commoners. In Hokusai's and Hiroshige's prints, we see the faces of this new middle class, both the excitement and drudgery of their daily activities, and favorite views of the landmarks and natural wonders they beheld." "Most of the 200 ukiyo-e prints in this book (100 by Hokusai, 100 by Hiroshige) are from the distinguished James A. Michener Collection of the Honolulu Academy of Arts." "Included in their entirety are Hokusai's series, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, and Hiroshige's series, Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road, along with selections from their other major series."--Jacket

From mind, heart, and hand : Persian, Turkish, and Indian drawings from the Stuart Cary Welch collection by Stuart Cary Welch( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superb selection of drawings from the extraordinary collection of Stuart Cary Welch Stuart Cary Welch's collection of Persian, Turkish, and Indian art is renowned throughout the world for its quality and depth. In 1999, Welch made a generous gift of drawings to the Harvard University Art Museums, which form the basis of the present catalogue. Spanning five centuries and extending from Istanbul to Calcutta, these drawings represent the great empires of the Ottomans in Turkey, the Safavids in Iran, and the Mughals in India as well as numerous regional Hindu kingdoms. This beautifully illustrated book presents more than seventy exquisite drawings-some of which are counted among the greatest Indian, Persian, or Turkish drawings ever made-and explores the connections between the arts and artists of the three cultures. As with drawings from European traditions, the works display an immediacy that is often absent in paintings. The drawings deal with fascinating and diverse subjects ranging from court portraits, stories from fable and myth, and hunting scenes to animals, flowers, and people sketched from life. The contributors to the book shed light on various aspects of the drawings and the artists, and Welch offers an engaging account of his trials and triumphs while acquiring the works in his unparalleled collection. This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (September 17 to November 28, 2004) and at the Harvard University Art Museums (March 19 to June 12, 2005)

They are portrayed in a story line that highlights artworks of their eras, from the dignified Song to the coarse yet subtle Yuan, and from the brilliant Ming until the final, dazzling Qing period.
