From ancient Sumerian pottery to Tiffany stained glass, Decorative Art had been a fundamental part of the human experience for generations. While Fine Art is confined to galleries and museums, Decorative Art is the art of the every day, combining beauty with functionality in objects ranging from the prosaic to the fantastical. In this work, authors Albert Jacquemart and Émile Bayard celebrate the beauty and artistic potential behind even the most quotidian object. Readers will walk away from this text with a newfound appreciation for the subtle artistry of the manufactured world.
Albert Jacquemart was a writer and art historian who specialised in French ceramic art. He published his well-known book, Histoire de la céramique.
Émile Bayardserved as an Inspector for the French Ministry of Fine Arts. He wrote many books about the various styles throughout art history
