European Art Glass - The Art of Ceramics: European Ceramic Design 1500-1830
The Art of Ceramics: European Ceramic Design

European Art Glass

The great age of European ceramic design began around 1500 and ended in the early 19th century with the introduction of large-scale production of ceramics. In this illustrated history, with nearly 300 color and black and white photos and reproductions, curator Howard Coutts considers the main stylistic trendsùRenaissance, Mannerism, Oriental, Rococo, and Neoclassicismùas they were represented in such products as Italian Majolica, Dutch Delftware, Meissen and Sèvres porcelain, Staffordshire, and Wedgwood pottery. He pays close attention to changes in eating habits over the period, particularly the layout of a formal dinner, and discusses the development of ceramics as room decoration, the transmission of images via prints, marketing of ceramics and other luxury goods, and the intellectual background to Neoclassicism.

European Art Glass

Stained glass is a monumental art, a corporate enterprise dependent on a patron with whom artists blend their voices. Combining the fields now labeled decorative arts, architecture, and painting, the window transforms our experience of space. Windows of colored glass were essential features of medieval and Renaissance buildings. They provided not only light to illuminate the interior but also specific and permanent imagery that proclaimed the importance of place. Commissioned by monks, nuns, bishops, and kings, as well as by merchants, prosperous farmers, and a host of anonymous patrons, these windows vividly reflect the social, religious, civic, and aesthetic values of their eras.Beautifully illustrated with reproductions from the remarkable stained glass collection at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Stained Glass addresses the making of a stained glass window, its iconography and architectural context, the patrons and collectors, and the challenges of restoration and display. The selected works include examples from Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Subject matter ranges from monumental religious scenes for Gothic churches to lively heraldic panels made for houses and other secular settings. Integrating comparisons to works of art in other ...

Going to Venice, Italy? Don't buy anything in Venice until you read this book! If you're traveling to Venice, Italy, you want to go home with a special souvenir: a piece of Murano glass, a work of Burano lace, a carnival mask, or one of the city's famous luxury fabrics. But selecting which mask or which goblet to buy can be an intimidating experience. How do you know if you're buying something authentic, something made in Venice, something made in a traditional way? How do you determine if you've fallen prey to one of the city's many tourist traps? Buyer Beware: Venice is full of tourist traps and mass-produced souvenirs passed off as authentic.

There is no substitute for an educated buyer. Laura Morelli leads you to the city's most authentic arts--the centuries-old trades of mask making, glass blowing, wood turning, silk spinning, and other traditions.

The history of ceramics is wonderfully diverse, spanning crude clay utensils to highly decorative pieces of immense beauty and craftsmanship.
