Focusing on the collection of ancient Chinese bronzes assembled by one of the most respected European connoisseurs of Chinese art, this book provides a new perspective of the outstanding accomplishments of China's bronze foundries. Displaying around 150 pieces dating from the early Erlitou culture (ca. 1900-1500 BC) to the Tang dynasty (618-907), this publication provides fresh insights, not only into the history of the art and archaeology of Chinese bronzes, but also into the refined taste of the collector. Each piece is thoroughly analysed and catalogued. This book is an essential guide for those readers who wish to deepen their knowledge on the subject.
