What's New May 2021

May 19, 2021

This month, Grove Art publishes 44 revised articles, as well as 8 emendations as part of our regular corrections process.

Updates include entries on the Great Wall of China, the Han dynasty (206 BCE–220 CE), and the ancient Chinese kingdom of Dian, whose best-known artifacts are large, bronze drums. Other new material expands biographies of artists such as Han Gan, a Tang dynasty painter of figures, goblins, and horses, and Zao Wou-ki, known for his large-scale, abstract oil paintings using Chinese calligraphic elements. This new scholarship comes from Grove’s ongoing major project on Asian art, led by Dr. Sonya Lee of USC and spanning thousands of articles across the dictionary.
