Learn about the ancient Chinese by examining the art they created. This title examines what their art reveals about their history and simultaneously how history explains the art. It explores the Chinese civilization through both the images it produced and cultural artifacts that remain. The title focuses on how art and architecture from a distinct period reflect life at the time, and how we can use the surviving art to understand how people used to live.
