Since the new period, the art anthropology in China has built its own academic basis from scratch through translating and introducing western art anthropology writings, and further developed into the localization of empirical studies in the process of digestion and absorption. This paper analyzes the development course of art anthropology in China since the new period. It divides this academic course into the academic preparation stage from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, the academic initial stage from the mid-1990s to the founding of China Society for Anthropologies of Art in 2006 as well as the steady development stage since the establishment of the Society. The study sums up the achievements and the shortcomings of each period and discusses the points for further research.
