About this title

Synopsis:

From the Middle Ages to contemporary times, decorative art can be defined by the artistic materials, designs and objects used in both architecture and interior design. Similar to many art forms decorative art continues to evolve, originating with pieces as simple as a chair, noted for its utility, to purely ornamental objects, celebrated for their aesthetic beauty. Decorative Art aims to eulogize these often undervalued objects by giving praise to all mediums of decorative art throughout the centuries. Originally never considered as fine art, their artistic potential was not acknowledged until the twentieth century when industrial production replaced artisanal creation. The age, authenticity and above all the uniqueness of these precious objects have now become the new standards of quality and beauty found in decorative art. Join us in discovering the evolution of decorative art through this enticing survey of major masterpieces throughout time.

About the Author:

Albert Jacquemart (1808-1875) was a writer and art historian who specialised in French ceramic art. In 1873 he published his well known book the Histoire de la céramique. He was also known to have an extensive Oriental ceramic collection and was the first to establish a specific typology that is still used today in occidental writing to describe Chinese ceramics from the Qing dynasty. After his death, his collection was bought and donated to the Musée de la Porcelaine in Limoges, France.
