When it comes to Chinese art, Tang Dynasty and Song Dynasty, the prime time in Chinese art history, cannot be missed. These are two dynasties when Chinese painting launched into its heyday, painting talents abounded, and realistic and classic painting genres climbed to the peak. Though painting works of Tang Dynasty, over 1000 years before, have been destroyed in natural and man-made disasters, we could more or less see the charm of Tang painting from the Tang Painting reproduced in Song Dynasty or murals of Tang tombs. If you are interested in the art of the Tang and Song dynasties in China, you would find it rewarding to read the "History of Painting in the Tang Dynasty" and "Painting Development History of Song Dynasty". The two books may guide you to the exploration of the magnificent art of the Tang and Song dynasties in China.
