EurAsian Matters: China, Europe, and the Transcultural Object, 1600-1800 By Anna Grasskamp
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 252 Pages | ISBN : 3319756400 | 23.83 MB

The volume examines the mutually constitutive relationship between the materiality of objects and their aesthetic meanings. Its approach connects material culture with art history, curation, technologies and practices of making. A central dimension of the case studies collected here is the mobility of objects between Europe and China and the transformations that unfold as a result of their transcultural lives. Many of the objects studied here are relatively unknown or understudied.
