Connoisseurship of Chinese Furniture Ming and Early Qing Dynasties






Publisher:  Art Media Resources, Incorporated
Summary: Connoisseurship of Chinese Furniture, with 800 plates & illustrations, is the most definitive study of Chinese furniture from the Ming through Qing Dynasties available today. The first volume contains six chapters describing the construction, forms, materials used & provenance of the furniture, & shows the authentication of pieces & the identification of later repairs & reproductions. Over 300 diagrams clarify this i...nformation for the reader. The second volume includes more than 350 black & white photo plates taken by the author, & 90 detailed line drawings. These provide the most complete record of furniture of this period & include many pieces which have since been lost or destroyed. Representing the culmination of more than 40 years' research by the author, former head of the exhibition department of the Palace Museum in Beijing, this work is unquestionably the most authoritative & factual work on Chinese furniture ever to be published in China or abroad. The first major work in English on this subject by a Chinese scholar, it is an indispensable reference for collectors, furniture makers, historians, connoisseurs & all who appreciate the art of China.
