From the Publisher:
"Rarely do we see the contemporary Communist Chinese view of ancient Chinese culture--and in this specific case, aesthetics--so freely set forth....Li's very personal view is a welcome addition to the study of aesthetics in any culture."--Choice
."..clearly one of the best short, single-volume histories of Chinese art currently available....anyone interested in Chinese aesthetics is urged to read some of Li Zehou's other books in English. But for those interested in a comprehensive, extremely well-written, highly informative, and enjoyable short history of Chinese art, suitable for high school and lower-division college instruction, this book is highly recommended."--Journal of Aesthetic Education
Since it was first published in Chinese in 1981, this work has been read widely and translated into several languages, becoming a classic in the study of Chinese aesthetics. The author, a noted philosopher and aesthetician, draws on examples from sculpture, painting, calligraphy and poetry, among other sources, from throughout China's history, to build a cogent and engaging argument concerning the nature of Chinese artistic values. While providing an historical overview of Chinese art from antiquity to modern times, he examines as well the evolution of the sociological, psychological, philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of Chinese culture.
