Seto and Mino Ceramics (Japanese Collections in the Freer Gallery of Art)
by Cort, Louise Allison
Washington, D.C.: Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian Institution, 1992. Hardcover. VG. Tan cloth, gilt letters on spine, black & color illus. dust jacket, 254 pp., numerous bw & color plates, map. Main text is in English, with basic catalogue descriptions also in Japanese at the rear. "The first comprehensive study in English of Seto and Mino wares, and the first in a series of publications on the Japanese collections in the Freer Gallery of Art. Because Charles Lang Freer began buying Japanese ceramics as early as 1892, the Freer Gallery collection has developed a historical depth that is of compelling interest for connoisseurs of Seto and Mino wares. This volume draws upon current research by Japanese archaeologists and art historians in its exploration of the Freer Gallery's important group of 126 works. Dating from the seventh through the late nineteenth century, the objects illustrate the long history of ceramic production within the Seto-Mino region." (dj).
