"With a new design and many new illustrations, this edition retains the elements that have been justly praised in earlier editions: introductory overviews offering a Brief Insight into each major period; Timelines which further enhance our understanding of the historical, geographical and cultural context of artworks; over twenty color maps; boxed essays on Techniques in art and architecture; Art Past Art Present boxes, illuminating the relationship between the art being discussed and our modern world; a series of Theme Spreads presenting groups of works from different periods and locations that can be more fully understood when seen in the context of other works representing the same theme. The authors have made liberal use of quotation from historical documents, and key terms are highlighted and defined in the Glossary."--BOOK JACKET.

"Featuring 70 works in various media--paintings, calligraphy, photographs, woodblock prints, video, and sculpture--that were created during the past three decades, Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China will demonstrate how China's ancient pattern of seeking cultural renewal through the reinterpretation of past models remains a viable creative path. Although all of the artists have transformed their sources through new modes of expression, visitors will recognize thematic, aesthetic, or technical attributes in their creations that have meaningful links to China's artistic past. The exhibition will be organized thematically into four parts and will include such highlights as Xu Bing's dramatic Book from the Sky (ca. 1988), an installation that will fill an entire gallery; Family Tree (2000), a set of vivid photographs documenting a performance by Zhang Huan in which his facial features--and his identity--are obscured gradually by physiognomic texts that are inscribed directly onto his face; and Map of China (2006) by Ai Weiwei, which is constructed entirely of wood salvaged from demolished Qing dynasty temples." --

Originally published in 1940, this book charts the origins and evolution of academies of art from the sixteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century. Pevsner expertly explains the political, religious and mercantile forces affecting the education of artists in various countries in Western Europe, and the growing 'academisation' of artistic training that he saw is his own day. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the various historical schools of art instruction and the history of art more generally.
