Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of color photos, this volume surveys the production of Italian ceramic art in the early half of the 20th century through 500 objects, each catalogued and seen in a black and white thumbnail image. The essays here examine stylistic trends like the decorative floral motifs of Tuscan ceramics by Galileo Chini; the extraordinary period of the 1920s and 30s, seen in works by Gio Ponti, Pietro Meandri, and Francesco Nonni; and the influences of contemporary painting and sculpture, of the Futurists, and of the early works of Lucio Fontana, Leoncillo Leonardi, and Fausto Melotti. The book includes artist biographies and maker's marks.
