Description: Antique Chinese Intricately Carved Wood Brush Box. Provenance: Purchased From Xi'an Estate Collection During The Late 1950's. Estimated more than 200 yrs old. Chinese art is visual art that, whether ancient or modern. Early "stone age art" dates back to 10,000 BC, mostly consisting of simple pottery and sculptures. Chinese art has arguably the oldest continuous tradition in the world. Traditional Chinese painting involves essentially the same techniques as Chinese calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black or colored ink. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made of paper and silk. Chinese ritual sculptures from the Shang and Western Zhou Dynasties come from a period of over a thousand years from c. 1500 and were cast with complex patterns and zoomorphic decoration, but avoid the human figure. Smaller figures in pottery or wood were placed in tombs for many centuries afterwards, reaching a peak of quality in the Tang Dynasty. Small Buddhist figures and groups were produced to a very high quality in a range of media, as was relief decoration of all sorts of objects, especially in metalwork and jade. Sculptors of all sorts were regarded as artisans and very few names are recorded. Chinese ceramic ware shows a continuous development since the pre-dynastic periods, and is one of the most significant forms of Chinese art. Most later Chinese ceramics, even of the finest quality, were made on an industrial scale, thus very few individual potters or painters are known. Many of the most renowned workshops were owned by or reserved for the Emperor, and large quantities of ceramics were exported as diplomatic gifts or for trade from an early date.
