Description

Lacquer is one of the most important artistic traditions of Burma - and also a living craft. The range of lacquer ware discussed is quite thorough, the discussion on inscriptions is invaluable and the photographs are excellent.

Lacquer is one of the most important artistic traditions of Burma - and also a living craft. Frequently used to decorate vessels of great style and variety. If the chapter on lacquer ware in Sylvia Fraser-Lu's Burmese Crafts Past and Present seemed too short, this is the next book to get. For the very knowledgable and very serious Burmese lacquer collector some of the examples used in the book may be dissapointing. I highly recommend this book.

The visual impact of Burmese lacquerware is striking - the objects are dazzingly coloured, often in scarlet, gold and black, and are frequently inlaid with colourd stone or glass. A natural plastic, refined from the sap of a Southeast Asian tree, lacquer is worked into vessels of every sort and is also used in architecture, furniture, sculpture and religious ritual. It is one of the most important artistic tradition of Burma and is very much a living craft. This catalogue features pieces from both the British Museum and the Isaacs Collection, a private collection. The book also includes five essays which examine the historical, regional, inscriptional and ethnographic aspects of Burmese lacquer.

Very fine book...

This is the first authoritative book devoted exclusively to the lacquer ware of Burma (Myanmar). I am an importer of Asian antiques, tribal, and folk art primarily from S.E. Asia, including Burma, and was delighted with the thoroughness of this books content. The range of lacquer ware discussed is quite thorough, the discussion on inscriptions is invaluable and the photographs are excellent. If the chapter on lacquer ware in Sylvia Fraser-Lu's Burmese Crafts Past and Present seemed too short, this is the next book to get. For the very knowledgable and very serious Burmese lacquer collector some of the examples used in the book may be dissapointing. I highly recommend this book.

The British Museum, London, should be applauded for launching the first significant exhbition of Burmese art in a major European institution. The catalogue is well-researched, well-written and presents provocative questions. A pioneering section pertaining to inscriptions on Burmese lacquer is especially interesting. Furthermore, the installation in London at the museum was stunning.
