East Asian Ceramics. The Laura Collection

Laura, Nera and Scagliola, Manuele in collaboration with Mengoni, Luisa E. and Kerr, Rose

This volume illustrates the remarkable collection of East Asian ceramics put together by Luigi Anton and Nera Laura during fifty years of passionate research.

For the first time, a selection of the most representative pieces from a historical/artistic viewpoint of this collection, which is to be counted among the most important in Italy, are presented to both experts in the sector and the interested public alike: Chinese ceramics and porcelain produced from the Song to the Qing dynasty (from about the tenth to the nineteenth century), as well as items from Korea, Japan and other South-East Asian countries. Alongside the ceramics, the volume offers an overview of the principal artworks that make up the "section of East Asian art" in Vila San Luca at Ospedaletti (Imperia) in western Liguria (Italy), the splendid house/museum that the Lauras, with great far-sightedness, donated to FAI-Fondo Ambiente Italiano, and that is destined to become a leading museum of decorative arts open to the public.
