Lucky Cat Sat 4th July 2015 - Anne Witchard (playlist and podcast)

 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
The Shirley Temple film I reference is Stowaway from 1936 (see pic below).
