This volume covers Chinese art during
the reign of the Sui and Tang Dynasties during which the various
disciplines of plastic and performing arts all entered a stage of
unprecedented prosperity and development. It also traces new
explorations in calligraphy, painting, and mural art and highlights
architectural achievements during the historic period.

A General History of Chinese Art comprises six volumes with a total of nine parts spanning from the Prehistoric Era until the 3rd
year of Xuantong during the Qing Dynasty (1911). The work provides a
comprehensive compilation of in-depth studies of the development of art
throughout the subsequent reign of Chinese dynasties and explores the
emergence of a wide range of artistic categories such as but not limited
to music, dance, acrobatics, singing, story telling, painting,
calligraphy, sculpture, architecture, and crafts. Unlike previous
reference books, A General History of Chinese Art offers a
broader overview of the notion of Chinese art by asserting a more
diverse and less material understanding of arts, as has often been the
case in Western scholarship.
