MAIOLICA: ITALIAN RENAISSANCE CERAMICS IN THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART. Timothy Wilson. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 2016. Highlights of the Collection. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 392 pp. with 400 col. ills. 32 x 23 cm. ISBN 9781588395610 In English.
Publisher's description: The brightly colored tin-enameled earthenware called maiolica was among the major accomplishments of decorative arts in 16th-century Italy. This in-depth look at the history of maiolica, told through 140 exemplary pieces from the world-class collection at the Metropolitan Museum, offers a new perspective on a major aspect of Italian Renaissance art. Most of the works have never been published and all are newly photographed. The ceramics are featured alongside detailed descriptions of production techniques and a consideration of the social and cultural context, making this an invaluable resource for scholars and collectors. The imaginatively decorated works include an eight-figure group of the Lamentation, the largest and most ambitious piece of sculpture produced in a Renaissance maiolica workshop; pharmacy jars; bella donna plates; and more.
