In last week's Lucky Cat I talked to Dr Anne Witchard about her new book British Modernism and Chinoiserie which examines the ways in which an intellectual vogue for a mythic China was a component of British modernism. Chinoiserie was revived in in London’s avant-garde circles, the Bloomsbury group, the Vorticists and others, who like their eighteenth-century forebears, turned to China as a cultural and aesthetic utopia.
We also discussed the current exhibition at the Met in New York: China Through the Looking Glass
