Abstract

William and Henry Walters did not restrict their collecting to bright, decorated Japanese and Chinese porcelains; indeed, they were captivated as well by the more somber coloration of Japanese stoneware. The collectors' purchases constitute a skeletal history of trends in Japanese ceramic production from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. Thirty works from this overlooked aspect of the collection are considered, ranging from a sixteenth-century small Seto or Mino jar to a masterful vase by Itaya Hazan.
