Samenvatting

The focus of conflict from the colonial era to the cold war, Vietnam at long last is emerging as a global force in trade and culture. Likewise its ceramics tradition, a fusion of eclectic influences and unique forms and forces, is exciting the imagination and delighting the senses of a widening circle of collectors and connoisseurs. The Elephant and the Lotus explores this vital tradition by highlighting over two hundred objects in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Ranging from earthy and practical stoneware produced two millennia ago under Chinese dominion, to the spectacularly decorated ewers, bowls, and limepots created at the pinnacle of Vietnamese civilization a thousand years later, the wares presented here reflect the natural wonders of Vietnam and the ingenuity of its ceramists. With an introduction by John Stevenson that places ceramics at the intersection of artistic expression and national identity, and extensive presentations by renowned authority Philippe Truong, this is both the first complete publication of a remarkable collection and an indispensable introduction to a rapidly growing field in the Asian decorative arts.
