Micromosaics: Highlights from the Gilbert Collection
By Zech, Heike        
Hardcover - English

From a distance, micromosaics appear like paintings; it is only on closer inspection that the intricate patterns of tesserae (the tiny pieces of stone, tile, or glass used to create the mosaic) become apparent. Some of the most virtuosic examples of this art appear in the Victoria and Albert Museum's Gilbert Collection. Sir Arthur Gilbert was credited with coining the term "micromosaics" and this superlative collection includes pieces ranging from portraits to table tops. Illustrated with stunning photography, this new book explores the technical aspects of making micromosaics as well as the cultural atmosphere in which such pieces first flourished during the late 18th century. Author Heike Zech traces their evolution through the 19th century until the technique virtually vanished in the early 1900s.
