Описание: Reclusion - the act of disengaging from worldly affairs for spiritual and moral cleansing - was a concept deeply associated with the ancient Chinese civilization. The theme of reclusion, or yin, was especially prevalent during the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, a period of unrivalled artistic achievement. This beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue invites the viewer deep into the world of 17th century China. Nearly 60 hanging and hand scrolls, albums, and fans - many never seen before in print - reveal how the educated elite expressed their thoughts and ideals through depictions of the landscape, birds, flowers, fish, and insects. Accompanied by penetrating essays on the subject, these works celebrate the extraordinary skill with which the period's artists communicated the simple pleasures of living with nature.

Описание: The literature on Worcester porcelain has a breadth and variety entirely befitting for the most widely collected of all the English porcelain factories, and the only one with an unbroken history of production from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day. Of the many titles, however, little has been written about the subject of over glaze transfer-printing, a technique both pioneered and brought to perfection at the Worcester factory. Joseph Handley's catalogue, with its hundred and twenty or so pieces of Worcester, is therefore a valuable and welcome addition to the bookshelf of the serious collector. Yet this catalogue goes much further, exploring many facets of the technique of transfer-printing on ceramics, an invention with momentous implications for the ceramics industry as a whole. Quite apart from the range of transfer-prints depicted here, the collection is notable for its sprinkling of rare forms which have been deliberately sought out in order to lend a variety of shapes to a collection principally concerned with decorative motifs. As well as Worcester, the collection is also strong in Bow and Liverpool, and contains outstanding examples from Vauxhall, Longton Hall and Champion's Bristol factory. Alongside his porcelain Joseph Handley has also assembled a fascinating group of transfer-printed enamels, including many with subjects corresponding to those on the porcelain.

Описание: During the eighteenth century, China's new Manchu rulers consolidated their control of the largest empire China had ever known. In this book Susan Naquin and Evelyn S. Rawski draw on the most recent research to provide a unique overview and reevaluation of the social history of China during this period--one of the most dynamic periods in China's early modern era. "A lucid, original, and scholarly summary of the social, economic, and demographic history of China's last great period of glory. This will be an important book for students of Chinese history."--Jonathan Spence, Yale University "Engaging, complex, and elegantly written. . . . Absorbing and valuable: a thorough, unique, and richly detailed account of the social forms and cultural and religious life of the people."--Choice " An] interesting and well-informed survey of China between about 1680 and 1820."--W.J.F. Jenner, Asian Affairs "I would be a very odd scholar or general reader who could not derive profit from reading this elegant and painstaking survey of the social, cultural, and economic life of the Qing empire in its apparent prime. . . . A superb survey which readers may absorb and cherish."--Alexander Woodside, Pacific Affairs "A highly readable synthesis of recent secondary literature on the subject."--William S. Atwell, Journal of Asian Studies "Their coverage is comprehensive and their writing is clear and lucid. reading this book obtains one a very broad, yet penetrative, view of Chinese society at the time."--Alan P.L. Liu, Asian Thought & Society "The ground covered by this book is vast. . . . Its very breadth conveys with great clarity the extent of current knowledge of premodern China: it also serves as an excellent introduction to the social history of the Qing dynasty."--Hugh D.R. Baker, China Quarterly "This is a most challenging work and ambitious work. . . . Chinese Society in the Eighteenth Century give both the general reader and also the historian who does not study China a tool for grounding himself or herself in the basic patterns and trends that could be found in eighteenth century China as well as in the problems the specialists are now exploring. The book is also of great value to students of traditional and modern China, for it serves to synthesize much of the new literature on China in the High Qing. Thus it serves the 'China hand' as a state of the field essay that shows just where we are even as it suggests directions for future research."--Murray A. Rubinstein, American Asian Review "This excellent book provides an intelligent summary our rapidly changing understanding of Chinese society in a crucial century of political stability and economic and demographic expansion. Susan Naquin and Evelyn S. Rawski are distinguished contributors to the field, energetically engaged in its multinational communication networks."--John E. Wills, Jr., American Historical Review
