Summary "Lark E. Mason Jr. offers a clear and concise guide to understanding the fine and decorative arts of Asia including the arts of the Islamic world. He addresses this complex subject in an easy to follow format beginning with an overview of the tumultuous history of the continent, leading into chapters on ceramics, metalwork, furniture and lacquer, the arts of the craftsman, textiles, prints and paintings. Each chapter includes a summary of the minor and major art forms with expert advice for judging quality and identifying fakes and over-restored objects. A comprehensive glossary, useful chronological tables, appendices on religions and major marks on Chinese and Japanese works of art are followed by a generous bibliography."--BOOK JACKET
