"From the Neolithic to the avant-garde, and through all the brilliant centuries in between, Michael Sullivan's introduction to Chinese art history is the classic in its field, unsurpassed in its clarity, balance, and sure grasp of the subject. Whether for the classroom student or the casual reader, its remarkable range and elegant style make this book a wonderful way for anyone to begin learning about Chinese art."--Jerome Silbergeld, Princeton University "I have used Sullivan's "Arts of China" in my class for thirty years. No other historian of Chinese art today commands such a wide range of knowledge as Michael Sullivan."--Richard Barnhart, Yale University, editor of "Three Thousand Years of Chinese Painting" "After more than forty years since its first publication, Michael Sullivan's "Arts of China," now in its fifth edition, remains the most concise yet most comprehensive introduction to the history of Chinese art to students and the public."--Wu Hung, Harrie A. Vanderstappen Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago "Michael Sullivan is the acknowledged dean of modern Chinese art studies, and any work bearing his name guarantees both a high level of quality and a wide readership."--Maxwell K. Hearn, Metropolitan Museum of Art

Very Good. Unmarked text. For the fifth edition of his internationally renowned The Arts of China, Michael Sullivan has thoroughly revised and expanded every chapter of this classic history of Chinese art from the Neolithic period to the present day. This new edition reflects the latest archaeological discoveries, pays greater attention to the art of calligraphy, provides more information on Chan (Zen) art, and takes a close look at contemporary art. New images have been added to almost every chapter: the work now features more than four hundred photographs, maps, and illustrations, with more than two-thirds of them in full color. 353 pp.
