Resumen del libro

This stunning book features the finest examples of Japanese cloisonné'enameled objects that reflect the exquisite craftsmanship required ofthe technique as well as the Japanese culturalreverence for meticulous and exacting work.
Cloisonne, the art of applying enamel to objects, dates back to the early Byzantine Empire. It then spread rapidly to China, Southeast Asia, Russia, and eventually the whole of the European continent. It is in Japan, however, that the technique was perfected. One of the worlds leading collections of Japanese cloisonne is the subject of this beautifully designed book, which celebrates apainstaking process that results in unbelievably intricate, delicate, and breathtaking works of art. The colors, which are separated by hair-thin ribbons of metal, are made of vitreous enamel applied bybrush and dropper, and then fired and polished repeatedly untilonly the thinnest metal wires are visible within a design of brilliantcolors. As the movement spread throughout the world, Japan began producing cloisonne in the mid-19th century. Japanese studios turned out exquisite examples of the form, many of which were displayed in numerous international expositions, including the Vienna Exhibition of 1873, where a Japanese cloisonne piece won first prize. The Gerber/Sherry collection is unparalleled in its variety and excellence. Along with exquisitely reproduced illustrations, this book includes a brief historical overview focusing on the work of Namikawa Yasuyuki; an examination of the role the Japanese government played in promoting cloisonne; and the collectors own story of discovering, falling in love with, and procuring these precious works of art.
