QING ENCOUNTERS: ARTISTIC EXCHANGES BETWEEN CHINA AND THE WEST. Ed. by Petra Ten-Doesschate Chu et al. Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, 2015. Issues & Debates. 320 pp. with 112 ills. (65 col.). 26 x 18 cm. LC 2015-4972 ISBN 9781606064573 In English.
Publisher's description: Qing Encounters: Artistic Exchanges between China and the West examines how the contact between China and Europe in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries transformed the arts on both sides of the East-West divide. The essays in the volume reveal the extent to which images, artifacts, and natural specimens were traded and copied, and how these materials inflected both cultures' visions of novelty and pleasure, battle and power, and ways of seeing and representing. Artists and craftspeople on both continents borrowed and adapted forms, techniques, and modes of representation, producing deliberate, meaningful, and complex new creations. By considering this reciprocity from both Eastern and Western perspectives, Qing Encounters offers a new and nuanced understanding of this critical period.
