Ferguson was one of the early western art historians of Chinese art history from North America. This survey is based upon his wide experience in observing and studying the best specimens of Chinese Art, through a combination of cataloguing China's national treasures of bronzes, jades, writings and paintings, and porcelains as well as his own large private collection.
