Review:

Among the finest examples of European craftsmanship are the clocks produce for the luxury trade in the eighteenth century. The J. Paul Getty Museum has in its decorative arts collection twenty of these clocks dating from around 1680 to 1798. Eighteen were produced in France, and two in Germany. These clocks demonstrate the extraordinary workmanship that went into both the design and the execution of the cases and the intricate movements by which the clocks operated. European Clocks In The J. Paul Getty Museum is a wonderfully handsome book with each clock pictured and discussed in detail. Each movement is both diagrammed and described. In addition, biographies of the clockmakers and enamelers are included, as are indexes of the names of the makers, previous owners, and locations. -- Midwest Book Review
