Art - Chinese: Primary Sources

.

Primary sources are materials in a variety of formats that serve as original evidence documenting a time period, an event, a work, people, or ideas.1 For Chinese art they include artist's writings and correspondence, as well as the artwork itself.  For ancient works and monuments primary sources include plans, drawings, and contemporary texts.
