A Swedish Legacy: Decorative Arts 1700-1960 in the Collections of the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm
This book presents the most important examples of Swedish decorative and applied arts as seen through the collections of the Nationalmuseum Stockholm. It is the second in a series of three intended titles on the collections of Nationalmuseum Stockholm, the first of which focused on the museum's important collection of paintings and sculpture.
Illustrated in color throughout, this latest addition to the Scala list charts the development of Swedish decorative and applied art from the Vasa 'Renaissance' period at the end of the 17th century, through Rococo and Gustavian Classicism of the 18th century, the Romanticism of the 19th century right up to the age of 'Scandinavian Design' in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Covers all aspects of the decorative and applied arts in Sweden, including pottery, porcelain and glass, furniture and clocks, silver and silver plate, tapestries, fabrics, textiles and plastics.
