AUFGEMOBELT: HISTORISCHE MOBEL AUS DER SAMMLUNG DES STADTMUSEUMS SIMEONSTIFT. Ursula Weber-Woelk. Verlag Schnell + Steiner, Regensburg, 2015. 152 pp. ISBN 9783795429737 In German.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Furnishings are not only everyday objects of their time, they documents for future generations art, cultural, and contemporary history at the same time. Also, in the collections history of the City Museum of Trier, furnishings have continually played a central role as art-historical objects. This work serves as the companion volume to the exhibit that examines the long-contested question "Is there a specifically Trier type of furnishing?" On the basis of extensive, critical comparisons of style and numerous color images, a systematic inventory of the urban furnishings collection is undertaken for the first time in this work. The period of time under consideration spans from the 16th century to the 19th century. Particularly attention is paid to the characteristic Trier desks and exceptional creations such as the pyramid cabinet. This work not only proves conclusively that there is a Trier style of furnishing but it also makes visible how we are to understand that style. This work is a companion volume to the special exhibition in the City Museum of Trier- Simeon Foundation, which runs from March 29th to October 25th, 2015, for which the furnishings collection of the museum are displayed extensively for the first time.
