Japanese Cloisonneby Gregory Irvine
Drawing on the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection, Japanese Cloisonne charts/i>
By the late 19th century, cloisonne enamels were among Japan's most successful exports. This visually stunning book, filled with new research and abundantly illustrated with specially commissioned photographs, examines the techniques and social history behind the craft.
Drawing on the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection, Japanese Cloisonne charts the development of the technique. Also featured is a catalogue of the previously unseen, world-class private collection of Edwin Davis, which includes both enamels produced during cloisonne's "golden age," around 1880 to 1910, as well as more experimental objects enameled in recent years, which reproduce the effects of porcelain or painting.
Here is a timely introduction to a sought-after collectible, as well as a revealing look at treasures from two outstanding collections.
