Description

A highly illustrated examination of portraiture in China across media and millennia.

Facing China  is an exploration of the portrait arts in China from the dynastic to the modern and contemporary, in painting, sculpture, photography, and  video. The book focuses on truth and memory in the portraiture process,  from encounters between subject, portrait, and artist, to broader  familial, social, and political arenas. It also examines the influence  of location on portrait production, reception, and display, from tombs,  ancestral shrines, temples, gardens, and palace halls to public and  private spaces.

Featuring one hundred fifty fine illustrations, with one hundred in color, Facing China has much to say to specialists in the field as well as general readers interested in Chinese art.
