Item description for Art & Imitation in China by Catherine Maudsley...

This ambitious odyssey covers Chinese art over a 3,500 year period, from the Shang dynasty (ca.1600-1100 BC) to the present day. Its three themes are "archaism," which pays tribute to the past through recreating objects and styles of antiquity; "transcultural influence," where foreign idioms, shapes and designs were adopted for reasons of religion, novelty, trade or, in contemporary art, as social and political commentary; and "intermedia exchange," or the imitation of works of art in a different medium than the prototypes they emulate, usually to display innovations in craftsmanship.
