La peinture chinoise et son public
Qu'est-ce que la peinture chinoise? Quand a-t-elle commencé? Et quelles sont les différentes associations provoquées par ce terme en Chine et en Occident? Dans Chinese Painting and Its Audiences l'historien de l'art Craig Clunas se base sur l'abondance des chefs-d'œuvre artistiques chinois et des images moins connues, dont certains sont décrits ici en anglais pour la première fois, pour montrer comment la peinture chinoise a été comprise par un éventail de personnes à travers cinq siècles, de la dynastie Ming jusqu'aux temps moderne. Richement illustré, Chinese Painting and Its Audiences démontre que les spectateurs en Chine et même au-delà de ses frontières ont  irrévocablement contribué à la formation de cette grande tradition artistique.
Résumé
Looking at a wide variety of media across a wide swath of time, Chinese Paintings and Its Audiences repeatedly exposes unexpected ironies that undermine facile assumtions about the Chinese and European art traditions. With this innovative work, Clunas sets a new bar for the global history of art.

Arguing that audiences within China were crucially important to the evolution of Chinese painting, Clunas considers how Chinese artists have imagined the reception of their own work. By examining paintings that depict people looking at paintings, he introduces readers to ideal types of viewers: the scholar, the gentleman, the merchant, the nation, and the people. In discussing the changing audiences for Chinese art, Clunas emphasizes that the diversity and quantity of images in Chinese culture make it impossible to generalize definitively about what constitutes Chinese painting.

Exploring the complex relationships between works of art and those who look at them, Chinese Painting and Its Audiences sheds new light on how the concept of Chinese painting has been formed and reformed over hundreds of years.

Craig Clunas is Professor of the History of Art at the University of Oxford. His books include Screen of Kings: Royal Art and Power in Ming China, Empire of Great Brightness: Visual and Material Culture and Social Status in Early Modern China, and Art in China.
