One of the great collections of central European ceramics is revealed in this beautiful and well-researched volume
The Koerner Ceramics Gallery is home to one of the most exquisite collections of European ceramics in North America. The collection is a testament to elegance, craftsmanship and the beauty of everyday objects, but it is also a reflection of the complex socio-political forces at work throughout four centuries of European history. 'A Discerning Eye' highlights approximately two hundred functional and decorative wares from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. From Italian Renaissance majolica to Haban pottery created by Ana- baptist craftsmen, the pieces featured in this volume document the evolution of style, technique and culture.
