About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Art Journal Illustrated Catalogue of the International Exhibition 1862.

Description:

xii, 324 pp. The standard source on the art, art industry and decorative art trade aspects of the second major London world exposition that took place after the groundbreaking 1851 London Exposition. The book abounds with textual illustrations of furniture, glassware, ceramics, sculpture, woodcarving, lace, stoneware, rugs, tapestry, silver, gold and other metalware, clocks, etc. -- in short, all the decorative arts, and by surveying the decorative arts represented by the myriad European (and American) national contributions, the book is an equally valuable source on the state of the decorative arts at a point in time. 1862 was surely a high water mark for the many revival movements and historicisms that characterized the mid-Victorian Era, also associated with the Second French Empire or Louis Napoleon, and the ornate was unabashedly celebrated. The Art Journal is generally upbeat and boosterish of what it selects to highlight herein, yet through the text one can also glean easily the attitudes of mainstream thought about the decorative arts then and the seriousness with which their production was treated. Over and above all this, the catalogue is a feast for the eyes of antique collectors and those passionate about Victoriana and the past. The half calf binding has a considerable amount of rubbing and wear. Some restoration has been applied along the gutter. Gilt decoration on the spine bright still but somewhat uneven. Shelfwear along edges, extremities and corners. Text block is tight and pages are clean. Bookseller Inventory #
