John Clark's magisterial The Asian Modern reconstructs the notion of art and its historiography. Writing the history of the Asian modern through the social life of artists, he generates a new paradigm for the narration of art. Both volumes meticulously chart his analysis of art in Asia from the 1850s to the present day, and are an invaluable resource for the scholar and layman alike.
