The History of Asian Art

Deborah Hutton, De-nin Lee

A flexible, chronological history of art across Asia

Organized chronologically, The History of Asian Art: A Global View covers the diverse art produced across all of Asia, including East Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, in one volume. With a strong visual focus, two expert authors encourage readers to develop and apply art historical skills to Asian art. Twelve “Seeing Connections” help students make cross-cultural connections both within Asia and with cultures outside Asia.
