This lecture presents the text of the speech about artists and craftsmen in the late Bronze Age of China delivered by the author at the 2007 Elsley Zeitlyn Lecture on Chinese Archaeology and Culture held at the British Academy. It describes dramatic changes in the arts that took place around the turn of the fourth century bc which deeply affected the nature of artistic creation, and provides examples drawn from two major artistic categories of artistic production, lacquer and bronze.
