ARH 211 - Arts and Visual Cultures of China

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course explores the arts and visual cultures of China from the Neolithic period through the nineteenth century. We will consider diverse media including painting, prints, textiles, ceramics, metalwork, jade, and architecture, as well as works in the College Art Collection. A central theme will be the role that various (non-Han Chinese) ethnic groups played in shaping  the arts of the Chinese court, with special emphasis on cultural exchange with Central Asia and the Steppe.

Prerequisite: ARH 103 .
Note: Not offered every year.
