The Principles of Aesthetics
by Dewitt H. Parker
Publisher: Silver 1920
Number of pages: 396
This book has grown out of lectures to students at the University of Michigan and embodies my effort to express to them the nature and meaning of art. In writing it, I have sought to maintain scientific accuracy, yet at the same time to preserve freedom of style and something of the inspiration of the subject. While intended primarily for students, the book will appeal generally, I hope, to people who are interested in the intelligent appreciation of art.

The challenge for the Metropolitan Museum is to represent this culture by the coherent display of masterpieces that recapture the great moments of China's past. Collections have grown under generations of collectors, curators, and changing fashions.
