Most of us know the major art objects of the Western world: the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, the Parthenon, Warhol's Campbell Soup Cans. But what about art objects from the rest of the world - from the "East"? Are you familiar with the ukiyo-e prints of Japan or the architecture of the Black Pagoda in India? This course will expand your understanding of the history, religions, and (of course) art and architecture of China, India, and Japan. You will survey the various currents and crosscurrents of artistic production in these influential and fascinating cultures, from the Bronze Age to the 19th century.
