Italian Renaissance ceramics
Members' price *
The British Museum collection of Italian Renaissance ceramics is one of the most important and most comprehensive anywhere in the world.
Apart from containing many works of great artistic beauty, it is unequalled for its high proportion of signed, marked, dated and armorial pieces, crucial for scholarly study of the subject.
This is the first systematic catalogue of the collection. The 495 detailed entries cover the period from 1400 to 1700 and include maiolica, incised slipware and the rare 'Medici porcelain' made in the ground-breaking Granducal workshop in Florence in the late 16thcentury.
Particular attention is given to patronage (the collection includes works made for such eminent patrons as Pope Leo X and Isabella d'Este), to the relationship with painting and otherarts, and to the history of collecting and the role of the BM collection in developing the international study of the subject.
A beautifully-presented tomb of knowledge.
