Italian Pottery Marks Faenza The City Of Ceramics

by Walter Del Pellegrino

Italian Pottery Marks Faenza The City Of Ceramics Synopsis

Black & White Edition. The only pottery & porcelain identification guide written in English that explores the rich history of one of Europe's most important ceramics producing centers, the city of Faenza. Faenza, from which the world of art coined the term faience, was home to such past greats as the Minardi Brothers, Pietro Melandri, Carlo Zauli and Riccardo Gatti and is now the home of the most important ceramics art museum in the world as well as the largest international ceramics competition on the planet. Unlike most identification guides this book brings the artists to life, explores their character and their world. It goes beyond dry facts and dates and offers its readers the opportunity to understand their collections in historical and human terms. With more than 125 ceramics marks and almost 100 photographs covering the 19th, 20th & 21st centuries, in a format similar to our first Italian pottery guide, the collector will find a wealth of information and a fascinating trip through time and art.
