Madeleine Jarry, the distinguished French art historian and member of France's National Trust for Historical Sites and Monuments, presents the multiform manifestations of chinoiserie as these occurred in textiles and wallpaper, ceramics, furniture, and décor, systematically considering them country by country. Over 250 specially photographed works lead the reader through a vast panorama of art - from Venetian lacquer to Chippendale chairs - an aesthetic and intellectual tour that is certain to enchant collectors, travelers, decorators, and today's new crop of China hands.
