Japanese Lacquer, In the Collection of Dr. Elizabeth Force

Japanese Lacquer in the Collection of Dr. Elizabeth Force is a comprehensive documentation of the lacquerware that Dr. Force has collected to date, ranging from literary boxes to incense utensils, from household items to objets de vitrine. They attest to the refined skills of lacquer artisans in Japan's late Edo and early Meiji periods. Monika Bincsik, Assistant Curator in the Department of Asian Arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a specialist in Japanese decorative arts, catalogued the collection and wrote the illuminating essays in this beautiful and comprehensive catalog.

Multiple color photographs by Matt Vought on each of the 96 pages.
