Chinese ceramics in the Baur Collection, Volume 1

Front Cover
The Collection, 1999 - Antiques & Collectibles - 464 pages
These two volumes present a selection of the Chinese Ceramics belonging to the celebrated collection of the Far Eastern art established as a museum in Geneva through the bequest of the Swiss collector Alfred Baur in 1964. A full catalogue of these ceramics by John Ayers was published in 4 volumes between 1969-1974, but this mugh-sought after work has long been out of print. The present more condensed choice of 342 of the finest pieces is illustrated wholly in color with many details including marks and inscriptions, and an extensive Introduction discussing recent advances in scholarship. Volume 1 includes Tang, Song, and Ming wares including many masterpieces of the art; Volume 2 is devoted to the incomparable series of Qing porcelains, which features an unparalleled range of monochrome-glazed wares.
