9781851777730: Vincennes and Early Sèvres Porcelain

  The glittering and colorful wares of the renowned royal Sèvres manufactory are prominently displayed in palaces and art galleries around the world. By contrast, the comparative delicacy and simplicity of the beautiful wares of the Vincennes porcelain works, out of which the Sèvres factory evolved, remain relatively unknown, even by porce­lain experts. Drawing from the V&A and Belvedere collections, which include rare early pieces of these two factories, the book traces virtually every step in the development of the first Vincennes manufactory in 1740, documenting its success in overcoming technical and artistic challenges and its rivalry with other European manufactories.

Book Description V A Publishing, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The opulent wares of the renowned Sevres manufactory are prominently displayed in palaces and art galleries throughout the world. By contrast, the comparative delicacy and simplicity of the beautiful wares of the Vincennes porcelain works, from which the Sevres factory evolved, remain relatively unknown, even to porcelain experts, who will find much that is alluring and surprising in this remarkable book. Detailed photographs and lavish illustrations reveal the rich variety of styles and increasingly complex gilding that mark out the products of Vincennes and early Sevres, including such innovations as the introduction of sculptural figures during the late 1740s. Much of these novel designs were initially inspired by the work of leading artists of the time - including Francois Boucher. The ebook that accompanies the printed version contains additional photographs, showing every piece in close detail, making it perfect for scholars, collectors and enthusiasts.
