Between 1932 and 1939, Liang Sicheng and his wife, Lin Huiyin, together with a few members of the Institute for Research in Chinese Architecture, traveled to Northern and Southwestern China on over a dozen archaeological expeditions to conduct pioneer surveys on ancient Chinese architecture and sculptures. The most prominent of these discoveries are featured in Chinese Sculpture as a collection of short essays and vignette sketches, covering the monumental cliff shrines and the most ancient Buddhist temples in Yungang and Longmen as well as the border regions of Sichuan and Yunnan. This book presents a panoramic view of ancient Chinese sculptures, from the earliest times to late Ming (1368-1644), as seen through the eyes of Liang, who was bent on preserving China s cultural past in the tumultuous and war-torn years of the 1930s and 1940s. Chinese Sculpture is illustrated with over 300 valuable photographs and hand-drawn sketches.
