China-Art-Modernity

£25.00

Product description

This book illuminates what is distinctive and significant about the rich range of art created during the tumultuous period of Chinese history from the end of Imperial rule  in 1911 to the present day. The story of Chinese art in this period is shown to be deeply intertwined with that of the country's broader sociopolitical development, with art serving both as a tool for the creation of a new national culture and as a means for critiquing the forms that culture has taken. The book's approach is inclusive. In addition to treating art within the Chinese Mainland itself during the Republican and Communist eras, for instance, it also looks at the art of colonial Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Chinese diaspora as a way to China into the global story of modern art as a whole.
2019 paperback in excellent condition with numerous colour illustrations.
