After the Sui dynasty (581–618) reunited China, the Tang revived the economy and strengthened the nation. Another period of fragmentation followed in the tenth century, before the Northern and Southern Song dynasties restored stability. Illustrated with exquisite carvings, calligraphy, painting, metalwork and porcelain, this volume demonstrates the growing material prosperity and artistic sophistication of the period.
