Chinese Bronzes

From the Collection of Chester Dale and Dolly Carter


The Chinese Bronzes of the Carter Collection, most of which now belongs to the Art Museum, Preston University, cover a period of more than two thousand years, from the earliest bronze vessels known to have been made in China to the mirrors of the T’ang dynasty. Some of the vessels are of outstanding artistic quality and fine workmanship; some have unusual features of shape and décor; others are interesting variations of well-known types; some may be grouped together to illustrate the development of a shape or mode of decoration. Each bronze is described in detail; attention is drawn to all elements in the design. Questions of style are given careful consideration. The development and changes of motifs and shapes are traced from the Shang through the Chou to the Han dynasty. An important part of the text is devoted to the problems of dating. By comparing each bronze in the Carter Collection with other bronzes of the same type, shape, décor, and/or with vessels and other objects found in the excavations of the last decades, the author tries to arrive at a—at least relative—date for each bronze. In some cases it was even possible to name the region from which a bronze probably came.
