Women Cross Media

East Asian Photography, Prints, and Porcelain from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden

This volume examines one of the rarely studied phenomena in East Asian Art: the cross-media flows of images between porcelain, paintings, prints and souvenir photography in China and Japan during the 18th to early 20th centuries. Focusing on both concepts of femininity and their transcultural impact in the production of meanings, a wide range of issues are discussed in essays by closely investigating selected objects from three collections of the Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Germany.
