A beautifully illustrated book showcasing masterpieces of European porcelain from The Met's renowned collection The quest to discover the process of making porcelain was one of the defining aspects of post-Renaissance Europe, and it had significant artistic, technical, and commercial ramifications. This beautifully illustrated book showcases ninety works, spanning the late 16th to the mid-19th century, and reflecting the major currents of European porcelain production. Each work is shown in glorious new photography, accompanied by analysis and interpretation by one of the leading experts in European decorative arts. Featuring blue-and-white wares from Italy, rare examples of German Meissen, French Sevres, British Chelsea porcelain, and much more, this is a long-overdue survey of the greatest porcelain treasures from The Met's vast collection.
