OCANA RUIZ, Sonia I.. From Asia to New Spain via Europe: Asian Lacquers and Chinoiserie in the Eighteenth Century. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.111, pp.131-186. ISSN 0185-1276.

This paper argues that during the 17th and 18th centuries, “Chinese” and “Chinese style” objects became familiar in New Spanish domestic settings by means of a process of “domestication” that involved Asian, as well as New Spanish and European works. The article focuses on both the production and the consumption of Chinese and Chinese-style lacquer ware from the eighteenth century. Special attention is paid to Chinese-style lacquers made following European techniques, as well as to folding screens and their role in the Chinese-style lacquer phenomenon. On the basis of documentary analysis, as well as on the study of several preserved objects, this paper demonstrates that the Chinese-style lacquer phenomenon was not restricted to Asian and New Spanish lacquers of pre-Hispanic technique, but linked to various works in terms of techniques, production centers, and prices.

Palabras llave : Maque; folding screen; Asian lacquer; European lacquer; Chinese style furniture; domestication.
