Craftsmen and scientists may feel that this book, intended for laymen and certain of those who profess and call themselves art historians, profanes their skill and learning. If so, I ask for their indulgence. Especially do I seek this from Richard D. Buck, John Finlayson, Alfred Lowe, Arthur Pope, Ian Rawlins, George L. Stout, and William J. Young, whose brains I have consistently picked, and without whose counsel and help this book could not have been written. Also, I am deeply indebted to my wife for critical reading of the text and much help in proof-reading.
