Ingenious Picture Restoration. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 12 January 1914

Chinese Porcelain. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 12 January 1914
Chinese Porcelain. The ancient world appears not to have any examples of their art fit to stand beside those of what is truly the Chinese national art of porcelain. Not until the time of Pulissy and Wedgwood can Europe be said to have entered into rivalry with the best works of China. But an enormous difference separates the ideals of China and Europe. The work in porcelain represents ideals, symbolic usages, and perhaps allegories, which have their counterpart in the mediae val stained glass to be seen in many of our oldest cathedrals. While these are religious and attempt to embody in colours on a flat ground regard1 less of light and shade, but in sym bolic colours, incidents in the lives of real personages or symbolic con ventions associated with religious ceremonies or ideas. Chinese decora tive art appeal? to a sense of beauty in a manner that would be appre ciated by the ancient Greek.
