Neoclassical style and imagery permeated paintings, sculpture, furniture, and decorative arts of the period, and a central element of design in all these art forms was the vase." "This book focuses on the vase as an artistic and ornamental form in a variety of media. It presents and discusses almost one hundred hidden treasures from The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection - not only vases but also wine and water urns, knife boxes, ink wells, perfume burners, fabrics, carved paneling, marquetry furniture, silver, works on paper, and paintings - all using the vase motif. Vase imagery ranged from austere to fantastic to romantic, say the authors of this book, and the vase became a new paradigm of beauty as well as an icon of European neoclassicism."--Jacket." ;
