He clearly describes and defines the important trends and influences that culminated in the brilliant sculpture of the T’ang, the enchanting landscape paintings of the Sung, and the exquisite ceramics of the Ming. Outstanding examples of each genre are presented in over one hundred superb color and black-and-white photographs.
