The history of Chinese art dates back centuries and includes a rich and varied body of work. Artists have used a wide variety of styles and techniques ranging from textile arts to painting. The Chinese were among the most historically conscious of all the major civilizations and were intensely aware of the strength and continuity of their cultural tradition Thus, it is quite legitimate to think of the history of Chinese painting primarily in terms of the styles of successive dynasties, as the Chinese themselves do.
The University of St. Thomas Libraries have a wealth of information in print and online about the artists and their art. For a concise overview of the topic, head to Oxford Art Online for the introductory essay, "China."
