Summary "Qing Encounters: Artistic Exchanges between China and the West examines how the encounters between China and Europe in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries transformed the arts on both sides of the East-West divide. These essays reveal how trading and copying images, artifacts, and natural specimens inflected both cultures' visions of novelty and pleasure, battle and power, and ways of seeing and representing. Artists and craftspeople borrowed and adapted forms, techniques, and modes of representation, producing deliberate, meaningful, and complex hybrid creations. By considering this reciprocity from both Eastern and Western perspectives, Qing Encounters offers a new and nuanced understanding of this critical period. Petra ten-Doesschate Chu is a professor of art history and museum studies and director of graduate studies in Museum Professions at Seton Hall University. Ning Ding is a professor of art history and theory and vice-dean at the School of Arts, Peking University."--ECIP data view.
