A Teacup Collection: Paintings of Porcelain Treasures

$16.95


Description

In paintings as pretty as the porcelain they depict, this book celebrates one of the finest teacup collections in the world: the over 300-piece archive of the Clark Art Institute, which dates back to the eighteenth century and represents coveted designs of the day from Europe and China. Artist Molly Hatch, with exclusive access to this largely unviewed collection, pored over the details of each cup to create this visual treat. Including page after page of paintings of the cups, and led off by introductory essays, this is both an intriguing reflection on the art of collecting and an utterly charming gift for tea drinkers and teacup collectors alike.
