Florals in Chinese Ornament

Florals in Chinese Ornament

 

from Examples of Chinese Ornament  in the South Kensington Museum and other collections by Owen Jones. Published London 1867.

Owen Jones (1809 –1874) was a versatile architect and designer, and an influential design theorist of the nineteenth century. His theories on flat patterning and ornament still resonate with contemporary designers today. He was a pivotal figure in the formation of the South Kensington Museum and advised on the foundation collections for it.  Jones was also responsible for the interior decoration and layout of exhibits for the Great Exhibition building of 1851.

During the turmoil in China in the 19th century particularly the Ti-ping Rebellion, vast collections of Chinese artefacts from the Ming, Ch’ing dynasties were sold to Western Collections.  Our fine art note card series represent a very small selection of floral designs represented in Chinese porcelain and cloisonné drawn by Owen Jones and now housed in the Victoria & Albert Museum, South Kensington.
