第一件宝物是郑振铎先生所编《伟大的艺术传统图录》,这重量级的宝物一上,直接晃瞎了我的钛合金狗眼。

网上一查,更是让人眼花缭乱,郑振铎先生所编《伟大的艺术传统图像》版本众多,所幸万能的豆友AMU早已列举了此书的大致版本,仙人指路在前,可惜此文没有图片实物,我在此基础上,在网上按图索骥,查到了各种版本的照片,一一补上,以资读者。

郑振铎先生编辑、1951-1952年初版的《伟大的艺术传统图录》(以下简称《图录》),是建国初期有代表性的中国艺术史图录,也是精美的珂罗版印刷品。《图录》按年代分为12辑,分别为古代、两汉三国、两晋南北朝、隋唐五代一、隋唐五代二、宋辽金一、宋辽金二、元代、明代上、明代下、清代上、清代下,收录各时期有代表性的中国艺术品共198件,有珂罗版图版146张,原色图版12张(每辑中有一张原色图版)。

《图录》的内容时间跨度长,收录艺术品多,印制精美,出版后广受欢迎,一版再版。因此,虽出版时期不长,但目前已先后有8个版本,在建国后艺术类图书中是少见的。下面按时间顺序,将各个版本的情况予以简要概述。
