This illustrated work brings together more than one hundred objects from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of European decorative arts. Included here is a generous selection of French and Italian furniture from the mid-sixteenth to the early nineteenth century. Masterpieces by Andre-Charles Boulle, Bernard(II) van Risenburgh, and others reveal the virtuoso craftsmanship that makes these objects such compelling examples of the furnituremaker's art. Many of the Museum's finest pieces of porcelain, glass, and tin-glazed earthenware are also represented. Tapestries from Gobelins and Beauvais, bronze firedogs from Fontainbleau, and a lathe-turned ivory goblet of astonishing complexity from Saxony are among the other highlights of this volume.
