Volume I of a 3-volume set.; Title translates to 'Black Porcelain: The Lacquer Craze and its Impact on European Porcelain'
"Schwartz-Porcelain" is the name for the lacquer-like porcelain in the inventory of the Japanese Palace in Dresden, where the enthusiasm for paint in the early 18th century flourished. The fascinating black-ground lacquer works from China and Japan and black glazed Chinese porcelain inspired European artisans and clients to develop similar techniques with new techniques. Splendid pieces of this attractive, as yet little-known genre are presented in this volume in comparison with East Asian lacquers and porcelains and explained in the cultural-historical context. This volume contains the primary text, in three main sections, detailing the historical influence of Asian laquerware design on European black lacquer porcelain, particularly Dresden, Delft, Meissen, Sevre, Viennese, and more.
