Masterpieces of World Ceramics in the Victoria and Albert MuseumBook - 2008
"The ceramics collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum are among its greatest glories. They are unrivalled in their range, diversity and global reach. Featuring 120 masterpieces, this beautiful book traces developments in world ceramics from ancient times to the present. Conceived as a visual timeline, it draws together potting traditions from across the globe, showing how they interrelate and how trade and cultural interchange have shaped their histories. Outstanding new photographs reveal an array of stunning pieces, from dramatic Chinese funerary sculpture, to exquisitely painted Italian Renaissance pottery and boldly modernist wares, many of which have rarely been seen outside the Museum."--BOOK JACKET.
