Synopsis: Japanese lacquer was widely recognised as the best available and seems never to have gone out of fashion in Europe. This important feature in the history of European furniture is discussed at length and illustrated by many examples. Over 650 illustrations provide a unique survey of lacquer in private and public collections worldwide, including the important documented collections in Italy, France, England, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and the USA.

About the Author: Dr Oliver Impey (1936-2005) was Senior Curator in the Department of Eastern Art at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and Reader in Eastern Art at Oxford University. His research concentrated on the export arts of Japan from the late sixteenth to the early twentieth century, and on their effect in Europe. Professor Dr Christiaan Jörg is a former Curator and Head of Research of the Department of Oriental Export Art at the Groninger Museum, Groningen. He lectures on the East-West interactions in decorative art at Leiden University. His research focuses on Chinese and Japanese export art for the Dutch market for the period 1600-1800, in particular porcelain and lacquer.

Book Description Hotei Publishing, Amsterdam, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. English text; Hardcover (cloth with dust jacket in slipcase); 25.5 x 33 cm; 3.023 Kg; 384 pages with 650 illustrations mainly in colour. Includes ribbon bookmark; Used book in very good condition. Minor signs of wear on the dust jacket. The slipcase shows signs of wear, namely edgeworn, scuffs and chips.; Japanese Laquer ranks among the most beautiful crafts produced in Asia for Western markets and had a profound influence on European art and decoration. The quantities shipped from Japan in the period 1580-1850 and the documentation available underscore the need for the study of this material. This publication is the first full treatment of lacquerware made to European demand, its trade in Asia and Europe, as well as the effect of lacquer and its use in a European context. Trading patterns are described in detail, based on documentary evidence of Westerners in the Far East and on the important and comprehensive archives of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Furthermore, the archives of the English East India Company as well as Japanese sources yielded important information. Reference is also made to records of American ships' captains and officers from New England. Full use is made of contemporary comments and inventories in Europe. The authors describe and illustrated the huge variety of known lacquer shapes and decorations produced for Asian and European markets, starting with Namban lacquer, the demand for which was initiated by the Portuguese. Private English and Dutch merchants followed, but it was the VOC which included Japanese lacquer as a commercial item in its assortment, making it widely available in the seventeenth century. In the eighteenth and first half of the nineteenth centuries private trade resumed, ordering specific shapes and decorations, sometimes bases on European models. Japanese lacquer was widely recognised as the best available and seems never to have gone out of the fashion in Europe. Japanese lacquer furniture was dismantled and incorporated in European furniture as tastes changed. This important feature in the history of European furniture is discussed at length and illustrated by many examples. Over 650 illustrations provide a unique survey of lacquer in private and public collections worldwide, including the important documented collections in Italy, France, England, German, the Netherlands, in Denmark, Sweden, and the USA.
