Global Luxory in Renaissance Venice (Hardback)

£39.95
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Global Luxury in Renaissance Venice offers an unprecedented exploration of Venetian maiolica set in a vibrant context of hybridity and exchange. Introduced by migrant potters around 1500, the medium of maiolica offers a unique point of entry into Venice's material world as it was shaped by Mediterranean trade and local luxury production.



This richly illustrated volume explores maiolica's multifaceted connection to objects ranging from Islamic metalwork to Venetian glass and examines the role of maiolica within the vast range of luxury objects made in Venice and imported into the city, highlighting the place of the medium at the nexus of cross-media and cross-cultural exchanges. Thematic discussions investigate the circulation of artefacts and the migration of ornament, the potter's workshop and artistic lineage, and maiolica's position in the material culture of splendor that characterized elite interiors.
