History, Art and Culture

Edmund de Waal is an artist who writes. His themes are the contingency of memory, diaspora and memorial; his ceramics are exhibited worldwide and his reputation as an artist of distinction was confirmed even before his memoir The Hare With the Amber Eyes him to be an author of equal stature. Now he transports us back to the world of Parisian belle époque high society to tell another story of art and loss, exile and tragedy.
