About This Item

Dauphin Publishing Limited, London in co-operation with Spink & Son Ltd., 1991 Book. New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English and Japanese text; Hardcover (cloth with dust jacket) with carton box; 23.5 x 30 cm; 1.750 Kg; 220 pages with colour illustrations. Includes fold outs of some of the pieces.; May show signs of long time storage and handling, namely the card box.; Satsuma is probably one of the best know names in the complex field of Japanese ceramics: yet surprisingly little has been published on this subject either in Japan or the West. This innovative book traces the origins of Satsuma pottery from its simple beginnings in the 17th century to the exotically wares of the 19th and 20th century. There are over 200 colour photographs of examples drawn from important private and public collections around the world. This unique combination of descriptive text and superb illustrations guides the Satsuma collector or enthusiast through the maze of pottery shapes, decoration and usage. Included in the book is detailed information on the lives and work of the Satsuma craftsmen, with photographs of their marks to aid the student and connoisseur with identification. SATSUMA is a necessary addiction to the libraries of all those who love and admire Japanese art and culture. The author: Louis Lawrence, born in London in 1949, has been involved with Japanese works of art for more than twenty years. After leaving the university he developed a keen interest in the Orient. This has resulted in a fascination with Japanese art, particularly Meiji art, a period in which the Japanese achieved an artistic pinnacle, and his development as a major dealer, becoming founder director of Tempus Antiques Ltd. The author has traveled extensively both in Japan and the USA for research purposes and has written numerous articles and catalogues, including the catalogue for the Hirado Porcelain Exhibition (London) 1981. Although he has written many articles and papers, this book on Satsuma pottery represents his first major work..
