About this title


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.
