Title: China and the West: Reconsidering Chinese Reverse Glass Painting
Edited by: Elisa Ambrosio, Francine Giese, Alina Martimyanova and Hans Bjarne Thomsen
Published by: De Gruyter, 2023
With contributions from outstanding specialists in glass art and East Asian art history, this edited volume opens a cross-cultural dialogue on the hitherto little-studied medium of Chinese reverse glass painting. The first major survey of this form of East Asian art, the volume traces its long history, its local and global diffusion, and its artistic and technical characteristics. Manufactured for export to Europe and for local consumption within China, the fragile artworks studied in this volume constitute a paramount part of Chinese visual culture and attest to the intensive cultural and artistic exchange between China and the West.
