Book Description:
These spectacular volumes present one of the most outstanding and comprehensive collections of Meiji art, comprising almost 800 works by most of the known masters from the mid 19th and early 20th centuries. These masterpieces from the Meiji period (1868 1912) are of a unique style and are unrivalled in quality of their craftsmanship the finest enamel work comparing favorably with the quality of, for example, such well known names as the famous Russian Carl Faberg. However, the decorative arts of the Meiji period have been largely ignored by scholars and collectors alike. Many of the finest examples were made for export, with individual objects eagerly acquired by western museums and consequently not seen in Japan. To stimulate worldwide interest in Japanese art of the Meiji period, the entire Khalili Collection of Japanese art is published in a magnificent large format, 5 volume set. The set is comprised of 8 individual books with over 2,000 pages and 1,500 superb color illustrations. Catalogued by leading international scholars, the series will provide an invaluable legacy to this little studied field. Volume I: Selected Essays; II: Metalwork (in two parts); III Enamels; IV Lacquer (in two parts); V Ceramics (in two parts).
