Italian Ceramics amplifies and updates the earlier volume, including objects - some of them porcelain and terra-cotta - acquired during the intervening years. Among them are a pair of eighteenth-century candlesticks representing mythological scenes and a tabletop with hunting scenes; and, from the 1790s, the beautifully modeled and painted Saint Joseph with the Christ Child.
Italian Ceramics contains the most recent scientific, historical, and iconographic information about the Museum's holdings. Completely revised and expanded, this book offers a wealth of new information about the Getty Museum's superb collection, which spans more than four centuries of Italian ceramic art.
With a historical introduction and individual commentaries by Catherine Hess, Associate Curator of Sculpture and Works of Art.
