Collector Bookstore Notes:

This book covers the Black Forest woodcarving tradition, or Brienzerwares, which began in the 1800s. Includes furniture, clocks and carved animals.

Publisher's Description:

With original documents discovered to build his story, Peter Blackman has eloquently explained the origins, artistic growth, and dissemination of Black Forest carved wooden furniture and fine decor now recognized worldwide. The style evolved in 1815 in Brienz, a small village in the Swiss Alps, and spread through the 19th century, with operations stretching to Paris and central Germany. Bears are the best known and prolific examples, but many other animals and human figures also comprise the style.

The book presents in detail the development of the "Black Forest" woodcarving tradition, or Brienzerwares, through noteworthy carvers, schools, companies, and the Great Exhibitions worldwide. Artists, collectors, museum curators, and wood carvers will be instructed and inspired by Mr. Blackman's relentless research, fine analysis, and keen eye.
