Summary
Although Spain was one of the main commercial and colonial powers of the Modern Age, its role in the circulation of Chinese export porcelain was far from being very clear. The present work, which examines the reception of pieces of this kind during the reign of the Habsburgs, is therefore intended to fill an important gap. Together with lacquered objects and exotica, porcelain circulated throughout the Spanish Empire, passing through the Americas, but until now there had been no record of the pieces that reached the Spanish market. However, Krahe reconstructs the journey of this porcelain ware from southern China, analysing what it was like, how it was displayed and stored, to what uses it was put and how it was valued in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain. Based on thorough archival research, a systematic survey of archaeological discoveries, a rich documentary corpus and a great deal of illustrations, the author provides an insight into a hitherto unknown aspect, opening up new perspectives for historians, art historians, and historians of material culture and taste.--
