Catalogue Brief Description
Historic Japanese ceramics seem to have received little public attention in this country and there is only a small representation of historic work in a few of the major public collections. All these collections lack a broad representation of Japanese ceramics and consequently for those interested in the subject there is not only a well known lack of reliable written information but an absence of actual comparative examples. This was the first purpose behind Hamilton Art Gallery developing a collection of historic Japanese porcelain. The other purpose was to gather the didactic material together that linked our Chinese and European porcelain collections. It is hard to understand the early development of the European ceramics and its links to the venerable Chinese tradition without understanding the intermediary role played by Japanese ceramics.
