Colorful, wildly imaginative, and technically innovative, majolica was functional and aesthetic ceramic ware, at once modern and historicizing. Its subject matter reflects a range of 19th-century preoccupations, from botany and zoology to popular humor and the macabre. Majolica M...ania examines the considerable impact of majolica, from wares used in domestic conservatories and dining rooms to monumental pieces displayed at the World's Fairs. Essays by an international group of experts address diverse topics, such as the extensive output of the originators and major manufacturers in England-including Minton, Wedgwood, and George Jones-and the migration of English craftsmen to the United States and the resulting demand for majolica in America. New research including information on important American makers in New York City, Trenton, Baltimore, and Philadelphia is also featured. Fully illustrated, the book is enlivened by new photography of hundreds of pieces from major museums and private collections in the United States and Great Britain.
