Chinese art

Chinese art A-Z

The current issue of the Art Libraries Journal (vol. 39, no. 2) is dedicated to the documentation of Chinese art (see TOC on page 2). To celebrate this ground-breaking collection of new articles, we highlight a broad selection of online resources, from traditional painting, calligraphy, sculpture, ceramics and other decorative arts to contemporary art, and from museums and galleries to libraries and archives:
