内容简介

This book traces the intimate connections between Britain and China throughout the nineteenth century and argues for China's central impact on the British visual imagination. Chang brings together an unusual group of primary sources to investigate how nineteenth-century Britons looked at and represented Chinese people, places, and things, and how, in the process, ethnographic, geographic, and aesthetic representations of China shaped British writers' and artists' vision of their own lives and experiences. For many Britons, China was much more than a geographical location; it was also a way of seeing and being seen that could be either embraced as creative inspiration or rejected as contagious influence. In both cases, the idea of China's visual difference stood in negative contrast to Britain's evolving sense of the visual and literary real. To better grasp what Romantic and Victorian writers, artists, and architects were doing at home, we must also understand the foreign "objects" found in their midst and what they were looking at abroad.

用户评论
大清时英使团、外销艺术与商品、英国的中国想象和视角。作者是研究19世纪英国文学背景的,蔓延到视觉文化和文化传播与两种帝国的遭遇探讨。优点很多,我的保留在汉学领域的power conflicts叙述,没有给人太多超出期望的东西。
写得挺糟糕,材料和论点之间关系疏离,文笔也比较差。
介绍了园林,瓷器,柜子和老照片,里面有一些珍贵的图片。
