5000 Years of Chinese Art is a full-size, splendidly illustrated volume offering a vista of five thousand years of Chinese art. 
 
Nearly six hundred colour plates have been arranged chronologically, just one to a page in order to ensure sufficient space for each work of art. Brief text below explains its features and the story behind it. Paintings, works of calligraphy, sculptures and fine handicrafts alternate throughout, lending an almost musical rhythm to the reader.
 
The choice of compositions, both systematic and comprehensive, spotlights art treasures from every era of Chinese history. The evolution and achievements of each domain of the fine arts are also displayed, guaranteeing that the selected works are true classics and artistically representative. This approach will help the reader gain an overall picture of Chinese art while experiencing the unique appeal of art from the East in a leisurely manner.
