    Colin Mackenzie is senior curator of Chinese art at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City. His previous publications include Asian Games: The Art of Contest. Ling-en Lu is assistant curator of early Chinese Art at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

    Including masterpieces from every period of Chinese art, the Chinese collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is celebrated as one of the finest outside Asia. This catalogue presents a selection of works ranging in date from the second millennium B.C.E. to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The selection is representative of the central traditions of Chinese art--ancient jade carving and ritual bronzes, ceramics, Buddhist sculpture, scroll painting, lacquer and textiles--and includes world-famous works such as A Solitary Temple in Clearing Mountains attributed to Li Cheng (c. 919-967) and the 12th-century Guanyin of the Southern Seas. Each work is accompanied by a short essay exploring its significance and aesthetic qualities, and an introductory essay provides an overview of Chinese art, focusing particularly on collecting and aesthetic taste. This book can be enjoyed not only as a stunning visual record of these masterworks but also as an informative introduction to Chinese art.
