The Tang dynasty (AD 618-907) is known as China's golden age, celebrated for the enlightened government of its rulers, its openness to outside influences, and its varied and magnificent works of art. This book brings together in one volume the most important artistic accomplishments of the age. A sketch of the dynasty's political and social history is followed by chapters illustrating the development of ceramics, the production of gold and silver, and the increasing sophistication of Tang painters and sculptors. Discussions of religious and funerary art complete the portrait of the era. Most striking in the Tang style is a heightened naturalism that conveys a poignancy and complexity unmatched in earlier times. Evocative and enchanting, the arts of the Tang reach across the centuries bringing alive one of the world's great cultures at its finest hour.
