AHY 2233 - History of Japanese to AD 1573

Credits: 4.00
This course offers an in-depth study of the painting, sculpture, and architecture of Japan from Neolithic times to the Momoyama Period (1573), with special emphasis on those arts that are unique to the culture, such as the religious and secular narrative scroll and the decorative screen.  Early Shinto architecture, the development of Buddhist arts, including the tea ceremony, Zen painting and garden design, temple architecture and sculpture are included.  Influences on the arts from China and Korea-religious, philosophical and social-are also topics for discussion.
