About This Book

The first in-depth exploration of the artistic and cultural achievements of China's "classical" era Age of Empires presents the art and culture of China during one of the most critical periods of its history - the four centuries from 221 B.C. to A.D. 200 - when, for the first time, people of diverse backgrounds were brought together under centralized imperial rule that fostered a new and unified identity. Over 150 works from across the full breadth of Chinese artistic and decorative media - including ceramics, metalwork, textiles, armor, sculpture, and jewelry - are featured in this book. Essays by leading scholars, accompanied by dazzling new photography of the objects, address the sweeping societal changes underway, and trace a progression from the early, formative years through unprecedented sophistication and technical accomplishment-embodied in an artistic legacy that reverberates in China's national identity to this day.
