This extraordinary and comprehensive work provides collector, dealer, museum curator, or institutional specialist, a visual survey of the many types and techniques, many of them previously unpublished and undocumented. Each example is
photographed, described, and accompanied with any relevant notes. There are many detailed images and valuable commentary regarding the works’ uniqueness and key attributes. Many examples have never been discussed or documented with images in previously published works on the subject.
The author has specialized in collecting Japanese cloisonne enamels for nearly thirty years, and has resulted in one of the most complete, diverse, and unusual collections in the world. Many of these works appear to be “one-of-kind,” but it is more likely that other wonderful and rare examples are sitting in the back of a showcase at someone’s home or lying on a dusty antique shop shelf waiting to be discovered! A large percentage of the collection is marked or signed by the artist, providing additional insight to items depicted in the book.
This profusely photographed reference guide will probably become one of the most useful and valuable resources you will have. There is probably no other comparable published work available that provides the scope and level of detail that is required by collectors, dealers, and specialists.
