About the Author

Stacey Sloboda is Associate Professor of Art History at Southern Illinois University


'Sloboda's articulation of chinoiserie as "critical ornament," a versatile visual and material language used to express and reveal various commercial attitudes in Britain, from trading to manufacturing to buying and consuming, needs to be commended. It is an important contribution to a wider understanding of the complex nature and multi-layered meaning of chinoiserie.' Vanessa Alayrac-Fielding, Senior lecturer in British history, Universite Lille 3, The Art bulletin, CAA March 2016 -- .
