"...Dr. Bagley, in this scholarly work, has enriched us with
his unfailing critical sense and insightful observations about both the aesthetic and
technical processes of this art form. As some of the lengthy inscriptions in the
late Western Zhou dynasty bronzes say, "May sons and grandsons for ever cherish and
use this vessel," so would we hope that the commitment and creativity manifested in
this volume be cherished forever along with the magnificent bronzes they glorify."
Arthur M. Sackler, M.D.
"This is a wonderful book.
It belongs not only in every art-historical library but in many general libraries
as well. It uses art to stimulate thought about the value of cultural diversity and
about the too little studied role of technology in human history. No one should miss
it who finds pleasure in looking at objects, or who is interested in the nature of
perception, or who wishes to understand a work of art from the point of view of the
artists who gave it form."
