Lecture 1 – Introduction and Pre-Han Pictorial Art

chinese art I begin by introducing my three major teachers, and go on to outline the background of the series: early attempts at histories of Chinese Painting, photographing and cataloguing projects carried out in the 1960s-70s, changing ideas about how art history should be constructed and written. I introduce Ernst Gombrich as a model for the kind of art-historical narrative I will attempt, but also emphasize the strong tradition of critical and historical writing in China that underlies my account. This first lecture ends with a brief introduction to early pictorial art in China: Neolithic painted pots, hunting-style bronzes, the earliest paintings on silk from Changsha.
