Shanghai Museum presents a nice sampling of bronze artifacts yet lacks contextual information for understanding why so many “food and drinking vessels” were created in China’s early civilization (especially when they weren’t used for daily purposes). For our second session, Julie Chun (MA, Art History) will take you through the Bronze Gallery and discuss the process of production and the socio-political circumstances in which China’s bronze culture emerged and why it eventually declined. Please note that each session in this series can be taken independently.
