"...A gorgeously laid out overview in which classics like Chen Rong's Nine Dragons, painted in 1244 are juxtaposed with contemporary artists from heroic Ai Weiwei to the fireworks of Cai Guo-Qiang... Engage with the art of China past and present..."-The Guardian "Phaidon's selection of 300 highlights from 5,000 years of Chinese art is notable for its stimulating juxtapositions... The marvelous diversity of forms selected illustrates the ongoing dialogue between contemporary Chinese artists and the traditions that both nourish and challenge them. Informative captions and a chronological timeline contextualize the individual works."-Sotheby's Magazine "The Chinese Art Book... is a beautifully-produced pictorial record of Chinese art... A book with such a vast timespan is well-placed to give a healthy sense of perspective."-The Asian Review of Books "...A stunning new compendium, The Chinese Art Book, carefully put together by Colin Mackenzie, Katie Hill and Jeffrey Moser, deploys a surprisingly effective strategy for making both current and contemporary works come to life..."-Town and Country Magazine
