Arts of China in the Early Modern World, 1550-1800 (ARTHIST 185)


The dynamic period of late Ming and early Qing dynasty China, roughly 1550-1800 CE, was marked by political crisis and foreign conquest, but also by Chinaâ¿¿s participation in a global system of trade and technology exchange through porcelain, print-illustrated books, and systems of perspectival representation. Innovations in southeastern urban centers of painting production, politically inflected painting, art theory, and cultural syncretism in court painting and garden design will be discussed among other focal topics.
