India China JapanBook - 2002
A visually stunning tour of the artistic achievements of Asian civilization, Asian Art highlights the greatest works of the Orient. Spanning an eclectic range of imagery, from the aesthetically classic to the intrinsically modern, Asian Art introduces the reader to the subtle beauty of Japanese screen painting, the elegance of Chinese calligraphy and the sensuality of Indian goddesses. The author, an archaeologist, historian and writer, has studied and traveled throughout the Far East. Her choice is an instructive and useful lesson in the finest of those arts, providing us with clear and simple ways to identify them. Sumptuously illustrated, Asian Art deserves a place in every art lover and collector's library.
