Summary "In Painted City, Paul Scott proposes an alternative version of ceramic history ... one where form and function are not dominant, but where painting and the graphic development of ceramic surface are the prime concerns. Covering a range from pre-Dynastic Egyptian painting on pots, through Chinese porcelain, Persian Minai ware and Maiolica to the blue and white of the industrialised West, he charts the development of increasingly sophisticated painted and graphic works." "The book takes an extensive overview of today's contemporary (graphic) ceramic scene, and the figures and movements that have influenced it. In exploring the use 'painters' such as Picasso, Miro, the CoBrA Group, Conrad Atkinson and others have made of ceramics, it also examines the relationships artists have had with the pottery industry, from Soviet Revolutionary Propaganda ware to collaborations at the Wedgwood Pottery company. It highlights a wide range of work by contemporary ceramic artists, painters and printmakers from around the world: Ann Kraus, Cindy Kolodziejski to Eric Mellon, Grayson Perry and many others." "This book should appeal to anyone interested in ceramics, as well as to painters printmakers, graphic artists and all those generally interested in the visual arts."--Jacket
