Re-organization of Chinese art/arts articles

This page gets a large number of page views - about 800 per day, but is rightly classed as "start" class. The much fuller History of Chinese art (B class) gets fewer than half as many views. A problem both pages share is that they include literature, music and drama and other performance arts. They thus cover The arts rather than art, the latter normally meaning just visual art in English and on en:Wikipedia - see other articles such as German art. I propose the following:

  1. rename Chinese art to Arts in China (currently a redirect to "Chinese art", or possibly just merge with Culture of China
  2. Redirect "Chinese art" to History of Chinese art - maybe renaming to the former, as with other country's articles
  3. Take all the non-visual art material from the current "History of ..." and merge to the current "Chinese art"/Arts in China - mostly it is better than what is there now.
  4. Take the "art market" section from the current "Chinese art" article & add to the current "History of..." article
  5. I would then like to improve the main visual art article, over time; the other arts I can't help with.

I'll take that as agreement then! Johnbod (talk) 21:57, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
This doesn't really make sense. Arts in China is now Chinese Art, but Arts of China is different page? Why not just redirect Arts in China to Arts of China since they both refer to Arts and not Art?

I don't think that this page should be listed as a page requiring translation from Polish/German. Isthisuseful (talk) 21:24, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Page needs reorganizing

At the moment it looks rather disorganized and I'm not quite sure why it is organized this way. Most of the entry are about Chinese literature interspersed with some random pieces of information about other arts. You can't really have a page about the arts and so little information about paintings (just one rather odd section), sculpture and architecture, or music, etc. This page is really rather lopsided. Why not organized it as literature (some the information can be moved to Chinese literature), painting and sculpture, architecture, folk art, performance art including dramatic art, music, etc.? Expand other sections where necessary, and there should be some kind of coordination with other related pages like Chinese art and Chinese culture. Hzh (talk) 23:06, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
