Chen, J. & Mao, C: PERMANENCE. Classical Chinese Stone Furniture. Taibei, 2003. 207 pp. Colour plates throughout. 30x22 cm. Cloth.
Catalogue of an exhibition held at Chambers Fine Art in New York. Whilst Chinese wood furniture is widely collected, the stone furniture has been much overlooked. This excellent catalogue helps redress the balance. Numerous stone pieces (primarily late Ming and Qing) are illustrated in colour and well-described. Includes stools, tables, lute stands, basins and flower stands. It is also interesting to note how stone pieces emulate their wooden counterparts.
