THE WINTER SHOW 2021
MASTERWORKS of MODERN JAPANESE PORCELAIN
January 22 – 31, 2021
Joan B Mirviss LTD at the Winter Show
To mark our fortieth year participating in the prestigious Winter Show, and its first ever online-only edition, Joan B Mirviss LTD presents Masterworks of Modern Japanese Porcelain.
Highly-prized in the East and West for centuries, porcelain evokes a rich history of luscious objects that, over long experimentation across varied forms and styles, always manages to balance contradictions: cold and warm, spare and decorative, strong yet delicate, functional and sculptural, traditional and contemporary. Each piece carefully selected for this exhibition exemplifies the extraordinary, even alchemical, way in which this luxurious material can embody opposing qualities while simultaneously revealing subtle aspects that are altogether new. It is no wonder that collectors all over the world have long been attracted to porcelain, and that forward-thinking artists today are finding new modes of personal expression in this dynamic medium.
This eye-opening, bilingual book by Joan B Mirviss has over 100 illustrations including those of museum exhibitions from across the US and numerous comments by collectors and curators. This engaging volume is now available through the gallery for $49 including domestic shipping.
