Blanc de Chine: The Great Porcelain of Dehua

by

Blanc de Chine: The Great Porcelain of Dehua Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beginning in the mid-thirteenth century, the kilns of Dehua, capital of the Fujian Province in southeast China, began producing brilliant white porcelain pieces, the likes of which had never been seen before. Today, blanc de Chine pieces are some of the most sought-after collectibles in the world of Chinese art, their aesthetic appeal lying in their stark shapes and color, and their impossibly delicate, glasslike glaze. "Blanc De Chine" weaves together the most engaging, authoritative story of this precious art ever told. For the connoisseur, author Robert Blumenfield presents dazzling photographs and important research findings from around the world. For the novice collector, he details the differences between true blanc de Chine and other, less distinguished white wares. For the Asian art enthusiast, he provides a rich historical account of the evolution of the form, and the character and technical mastery that distinguish its finest pieces. A major contribution to the field, "Blanc De Chine" will be treasured by all who appreciate the breathtaking beauty and fascinating tradition of this exquisite art.
