Paludan, Ann: CHINESE SCULPTURE. A Great Tradition. Chicago, 2006. 396 pp. Over 300 colour plates. 27x22 cm. Cloth.
Ann Paludan has been researching Chinese sculpture for thirty years and published regularly during this time. This new book takes into account the archaeological discoveries that have revolutionised our knowledge of this once-neglected field. It includes many previously unpublished photographs. Written with remarkable style and clarity, the book traces the history of Chinese sculpture through the imperial period, and provides a coherent account centred on sculpture as a particularly efficacious art - socially, politically and religiously - in palace, tomb, temple and other social space. A major contribution.
