Edited by Prof Michelle Huang Ying-ling, Assistant Professor of Department of Visual Studies, the new book entitled The Reception of Chinese Art Across Cultures is a collection of essays examining the ways in which Chinese art has been circulated, collected, exhibited and perceived in Japan, Europe and America from the 14th to the 21st century. 

Stimulating examples within this volume emphasise the Western understanding of Chinese pictorial art, while addressing issues concerning the consumption of Chinese art and Chinese-inspired artistic productions from early times to the contemporary period; the roles of collector, curator, museum and auction house in shaping the taste, meaning and conception of art; and the art and cultural identity of the Chinese diaspora in a global context. 

The book was chosen by its publisher, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, as their January “Book of the Month”. To read a sample extract of the book, please go to: http://www.cambridgescholars.com/the-reception-of-chinese-art-across-cultures
