Colonial Period Furniture in the Geoffrey Bawa Collection





The book is the first comprehensive catalogue of any of the collections of the decorative arts in the Bawa collections. With meticulous measure drawings and black and white photos of almost all the pieces in the collection, the book records these pieces sometimes in places inaccessible to public view, so they may be appreciated for what they are as objects that represent almost 200 years of occidental involvement in the decorative arts in Sri Lanka.
