Описание: With original documents discovered to build his story, Peter Blackman has eloquently explained the origins, artistic growth, and dissemination of Black Forest carved wooden furniture and fine decor now recognised world-wide. The style evolved in 1815 in Brienz, a small village in the Swiss Alps, and spread through the 19th century, with operations stretching to Paris and central Germany. Bears are the best known and prolific examples, but many other animals and human figures also comprise the style. The book presents in detail the development of the "Black Forest" woodcarving tradition, or Brienzerwares, through noteworthy carvers, schools, companies, and the Great Exhibitions world-wide. Artists, collectors, museum curators, and wood carvers will be instructed and inspired by Mr Blackmans relentless research, fine analysis, and keen eye.
