One of the Wadsworth Atheneum's most prized permanent collections is the large group of French eighteenth-century porcelain, much of it bequeathed by J. Pierpont Morgan. More than 250 individual pieces from the manufactories of Saint-Cloud, Chantilly, Villeroy-Mennecy, Vincennes, and Sevres are now published in full for the first time. The entries cover the history of all the objects, their form, usage, and decoration. Scholarly commentary is provided on their dating, style, decorators, and historical context. 416 pages with black and white and color illustrations.
