A new style evolved in the decade of 1720-30. Now the Europeans would treat their "Chinese" and "Indian" subjects in a more fanciful manner, far removed from reality and often quite caricatural. Such chinoiserie owed much to the French, whose work would influence the whole of Europe. The development coincided with the emergence of the Rococo, an artistic manifestation all but synonymous with the reign of Louis XV. If chinoiserie cannot be identitified totally with the Rococo, it was certainly one of the more important aspects of that style, which in a very subtle manner combined Far Eastern elements with European motifs. -- Introduction.

The Mongol invasion in the thirteenth century marked a new phase in the development of Islamic art. Trans-Eurasian exchanges of goods, people and ideas were encouraged on a large scale under the auspices of the Pax Mongolica. With the fascination of portable objects brought from China and Central Asia, a distinctive, hitherto unknown style - Islamic chinoiserie - was born in the art of Iran.Highly illustrated, Islamic Chinoiserie offers a fascinating glimpse into the artistic interaction between Iran and China under the Mongols. By using rich visual materials from various media of decorative and pictorial arts - textiles, ceramics, metalwork and manuscript painting - the book illustrates the process of adoption and adaptation of Chinese themes in the art of Mongol-ruled Iran in a visually compelling way. The observation of this unique artistic phenomenon serves to promote the understanding of the artistic diversity of Islamic art in the Middle Ages.Key Features*Covers various media of decorative and pictorial arts from Iran, Central Asia and China*Deals with a diverse range of issues related to the East-West artistic relationship in the Middle Ages*Features in-depth studies of style, technique and iconography in Iranian art under the Mongols*Includes 125 illustrations, 24 in colour

Porcelain imported from China was the most highly coveted new medium in sixteenth- and early seventeenth-­century Europe. Its pure white color, translucency, and durability, as well as the delicacy of decoration, were impossible to achieve in European earthenware and stoneware. In response, European ceramic factories set out to discover the process of producing porcelain in the Chinese manner, with significant artistic, technical, and commercial ramifications for Britain and the Continent. Indeed, not only artisans, but kings, noble patrons, and entrepreneurs all joined in the quest, hoping to gain both prestige and profit from the enterprises they established. This beautifully illustrated volume showcases ninety works that span the late sixteenth to the mid-nineteenth century and reflect the major currents of European porcelain production. Each work is illustrated with glorious new photography, accompanied by analysis and interpretation by one of the leading experts in European decorative arts. Among the wide range of porcelains selected are rare blue-and-white wares and figures from Italy, superb examples from the Meissen factory in Germany and the Sèvres factory in France, and ceramics produced by leading British eighteenth-century artisans. Taken together, they reveal why the Metropolitan Museum’s holdings in this field are among the finest in the world. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana}

English summary: In the context of this book, the term 'foreign' can be interpreted in such a way as to consider anything outside one's perceived norm as unfamiliar and therefore strange or even odd. This attitude, however, can change as a result of greater familiarity with foreign culture and art so that the foreign trait might be considered as something exceptional to be admired and therefore desirable or even treasured. The foreign phenomenon in 'Oriental' art can be understood in two ways: either as the approach of Europe towards the Muslim Middle East (including North Africa and Central Asia) and its art or, conversely, as the attitude and reaction of the Middle East towards the Western world and its art. This phenomenon pertains also to the approach of the Middle East to the Far East and its art, as well as the attitude of the Far East to Middle Eastern art. In the course of historical developments the attitude and approach of the parties change significantly and bring about different results. All interest in the 'other' and 'outsider' artworks has for a long time taken place in spite of repeated hostilities, but trade for luxury goods and new ideas, as well as interest in profitable merchandising never entirely stopped the flow of exchanges. These exchanges were numerous and could also mean that the commercial drive and curiosity of mankind wins out over the hesitation to adopt features of foreign art and culture. The mystery and lure of the exotic and the magical attraction of the "foreign" element can take many forms. In the chapters of this book it will be shown that this fascination with foreign artistic features, themes, and goods can be deemed desirable and coveted, can be expressed in many different ways, and usher in new artistic concepts. German description: In den Beitragen dieser Publikation wird versucht, das Wort "fremd" in seiner Bedeutung fur die orientalische Kunstgeschichte zu analysieren. Wie Fremdheit wahrgenommen, beurteilt und bildlich festgehalten wird, stellt eines der grundlegenden Themen der visuellen Disziplinen dar. Dieses Phanomen unter moglichst verschiedenen Aspekten - von Europa aus wie auch aus der Sicht der orientalischen und ostasiatischen Kulturen - zu untersuchen, ist das Anliegen der hier zusammengestellten Beitrage. Sie befassen sich innerhalb der kunsthistorischen Artikel mit Ausserungen uber fremde Kunst sowie mit der Darstellung fremder Menschen und ihrer Erscheinung, der Einstellung fremden Kulturleistungen gegenuber und dem Umgang mit dem Fremden in der eigenen Gesellschaft. Weitere Themen des Bandes sind die gegenseitige Befruchtung der Kunst des Vorderen Orients und Chinas, der Kunst Chinas und Europas, der Kunst Irans und Agyptens, die Beeinflussung der Kunst der Turkei durch die antike und europaische Kunst sowie der Kunst Indiens durch die europaische Kunst. Was bisher nicht gelang, ist, das Wort "das Fremde" fur die verschiedenen Gebiete der orientalischen Kunst zu definieren. Nachdem bereits Gregor Schoeler fur das Wort "Fremde" und Franz Rosenthal fur das Wort "stranger" eine allgemeine Diskussionsgrundlage erschlossen haben, unterblieb eine Umsetzung des Wortes fur die Kunstgeschichte bis zuletzt. In dieser Publikation ist das Wort "das Fremde" durch den Begriff "the other" ersetzt. Es werden verschiedene Ansatze unter dem Schlagwort "the other" vorgelegt, um zu einer Diskussion und einer weiterfuhrenden Definition des Wortes beizutragen. Gerade zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts ist der Umgang mit dem Phanomen des "Fremden" eines der Grundprobleme fur die gesamte kulturelle Entwicklung und damit naturlich auch ein wichtiges, zu Vertiefung und Weiterentwicklung einladendes Thema fur die Kunstgeschichte.
