Overview

The Art of Rhinoceros Horn Carving in China by Jan Chapman

The Art of Rhinoceros Horn Carving in China is an outstanding illustrated survey of pieces from some of the world's finest and most unusual private and public collections.

During her years as Far Eastern Curator at the Chester Beatty Library Collection, Jan Chapman established a unique system of categorization for these rare objects. This framework enables both the connoisseur and collector to recognize items through various seals and to trace the influences of other materials such as jade, soap-stone and blanc de chine, enhancing their understanding of this little-known field.
