Ceramics and porcelain of China and Southeast Asia

As the companion to the catalogue dedicated to Islamic ceramics, this second volume describes the collection of East Asian ceramics acquired over fifty years by Luigi Anton and Nera Laura. It includes Chinese ceramics and porcelain of the Song and Qing dynasties (roughly from the 10th to the 19th century), but also artefacts from Korea, Japan and other parts of Southeast Asia. The volume also provides an overview of the main pieces of the “Art of East Asia” section at Villa San Luca in Ospedaletti (Imperia), the splendid villa-museum donated by Laura to FAI (Italian National Trust) for public enjoyment.
