Chinese art history


The approach adopted for the discussion on the history of Chinese culture follows a dynastic view where the history is classified on the dynastic framework. The arts of the various dynasties have distinct characteristics from each other and provide an exhaustive and sequential approach to the history of Chinese art. Unlike the western approach on the history of this art, this approach puts into context the understanding of the Chinese people in the subject as the approach is similar to their view on the history of the art.
