A fine, clean First Edition copy of "Italian Maiolica", by Timothy Wilson, published in 1989 by Phaidon - Christie's, as one of their Christie's Handbooks series. The author, a member of Staff at the British Museum, and regarded as one of the world's foremost authorities on maiolica, here offers an introduction to Italian Renaissance ceramics. The Fortnum collection in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, is outstanding in it's quality, range, and high proportion of documented pieces. In this selection, Timothy Wilson is thus able to create an overview of the subject by illustrating fine and characteristic pieces by the greatest artists in the major centres of production. In his detailed commentary on each piece, he provides documentary and bibliographical information, and relates the subject matter of the painted scenes to the wider artistic culture of the time. Hard covers, 80 pages, full colour illustrations throughout, original dust jacket.
