This program is part of a series, narrated by Edmund Capon, that takes the viewer to China, to learn about the art history of that land, whose cultural heritage spans thousands of years. Generous presentations of artwork are placed in context of both the people and the expansive landscape that produced them. This episode considers works from the Bronze Age, as well as the Han and Tang Dynasties. Art historians offer their insights on the meaning and importance of those artistic contributions.
