Footnotes

  • In his discussion of a daybed in the Minneapolis Museum of Art, Robert Jacobson called that form 'the grandfather of all Chinese furniture,' and went on to describe its role as a veritable missing link in the slow evolution from floor based living in the Han through the chair and table culture of the Tang. See Jacobson and Grindley, Classical Chinese Furniture in the Minneapolis Museum of Art, Chicago, 1999; pg. 80-81 catalog entry 21.
