Introduction[PDF] pdf-icon

The family model has been central to patterns of social organization and cultural articulation throughout Chinese history, influencing all facets of the content and style of Chinese art. With contributors drawn from the disciplines of art history, anthropology, psychiatry, history, and literature, this volume explores the Chinese concept of family and its impact upon artistic production. In essays ranging from the depiction of children to adult portraiture, through literary constructions of gender and the psychodynamics of cinema, these authors consider the historical foundations of the family--both real and ideal--in ancient China, discuss the perpetuation of this model in later Chinese history and modern times, and analyze how family paradigms informed and intersected with art and literature.

Jerome Silbergeld is the P. Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Professor of Chinese Art History at Princeton University and director of Princeton’s Tang Center for East Asian Art. Dora C. Y. Ching is associate director of the Tang Center for East Asian Art. They are the coeditors of ARTiculations: Undefining Chinese Contemporary Art, Persistence/Transformation: Text as Image in the Art of Xu Bing, and (with Judith G. Smith and Alfreda Murck) Bridges to Heaven: Essays on East Asian Art in Honor of Professor Wen C. Fong.
