Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
Hearn, a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, selected more than 100 works to present here, drawn from an extensive traveling exhibition featuring Neolithic and Bronze Age works, as well as Sung, Ming, and other dynasty masterpieces. This beautifully produced book contains fine-quality reproductions that illuminate a splendid collection of rare artwork. Hearn's text will be understood and appreciated by all readers, but particularly those who appreciate a fine calligraphic scroll, a porcelain sculpture, or a pastoral scene. The text describes in accessible terms important background information, including cultural climate, historical events, and artistic elements.
