The Origins of museums : the cabinet of curiosities in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Europe by O. R Impey( Book )

43 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Origins of Museums is an extensive account of the first great collections in late sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe. The collections, then called 'cabinets of curiosities', were the beginnings of museums as we now know them. The discovery of the New World saw a huge influx of exotic and rare exhibits arrive in from distant lands. These discoveries revolutionised the European view of the wider world. Scholars from all over the globe describe in thirty- three essays the achievements of numerous significant collectors, the range of material gathered and the impact these collections had on Late Renaissance society. With a comprehensive bibliography, the papers provide expert insight into this fascinating period of collecting history, a generally neglected subject.--Amazon.com

Japanese paintings in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford by Janice Katz( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... sixty of the finest paintings are discussed in detail individually, divided into sections based on the major schools of painting active in Japan from the Edo period (1615-1868) to the modern era. Throughout the discussion, the book highlights the work of artists outside the traditional cultural centers of Edo and Kyoto by including artworks by Nagasaki- and Osaka-based artists whose paintings will be less familiar to a Western audience. In addition, the catalogue focuses on painting formats that reached their peak of expression during this era such as painted albums and fan paintings, both of which became advantageous choices for artists working in a variety of styles."--Amazon
