This addition to the ongoing How to Read series focuses on the rich history of Chinese ceramics. Geared to appeal to a nonspecialist audience, the series is intended to guide the reader through the subject matter and show them how to "read" works of art from around the world ranging from antiquity to the present, broadening their understanding of these works and their cultures.
This volume features Chinese ceramic vessels and sculptures of diverse subjects, shapes, and materials that date from the Neolithic Period to the twentieth century. Both highlighting the accomplishments of their makers and exemplifying the breadth and depth of China's cultural achievement, each of these works in the Metropolitan's impressive collection of Asian art is examined in a richly illustrated catalogue entry.
