China at the Court of the Emperors

Unknown Masterpieces from Han Tradition to Tang Elegance, 25-907

Edited by Sabrina Rastelli. Text by Roderick Whitfield, Felix Schoeber, Lillian Lan-ying, Nicola di Cosmo.

China at the Court of the Emperors presents almost two hundred masterpieces, various in form and rich in beauty, coming from thirty-two museums and institutes in Shaanxi, Henan, Gansu, and Jiangsu provinces, many of them never seen in the West before. It examines the vast period from the Eastern Han dynasty (25–220) through the Tang (618–907), during which Chinese civilization underwent radical transformation. As a matter of fact, Tang China synthesized foreign and indigenous elements that had been present for centuries, thus creating a new, distinctive, and extraordinary cosmopolitan civilization, made possible by tolerance—a message as important today as it was 1,500 years ago. The book includes essays by some of the foremost experts in the field, including Roderick Whitfield (School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London), Felix Schoeber (University of Westminster, London), Lillian Lan-ying Tseng (Yale University), Nicola di Cosmo (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton), Stefano Zacchetti (Università Ca’ Foscari, Venice), and Chao-Hui Jenny Liu (New York University).


Sabrina Rastelli is professor at Universita Ca’ Foscari in Venice. She is the author of Ceramica Cinese: Evoluzione tecnologica dal Neolitico alle Cinque Dinastie, published by Libreria Editrice Cafoscarina, in 2004.
