Within the limits of Chinese society at the time, the fourteenth-century artist, writer, scholar was confronted with many of the problems we confront today. Alienation, revolt, the individual, the in-group, identity and character, originality, the use or discarding of tradition, these and many others are as much a part of the Yuan ethos as of today. The visible responses and solutions of the artists, within the rules of the game they had to play, should be of particular interest now." this extensive & profusely illustrated volume is the catalogue of the 1968 exhibition of Yuan Dynasty Chinese Art held at the Cleveland (Ohio) Museum of Art in 1968; illustrated by 306 b/w. plates of the exhibits; the book cocontains a lengthy illustrated introduction followed by appendices on Lacquer; Jade & Ivory and Textiles; an article on the Chinese Under the Mongols by Wai-kam Ho; Chronological Table of the Yuan Dynasty; maps of China Under the Mongols in the Yuan Dynasty and of the Chiang-Che-hsing-sheng Province & also of.
