Lucky Cat - 4th July 2015

About the show

Playing tracks by

Rufus Thomas.

Presented by Zoë Baxter, Lucky Cat focuses on Chinese and East Asian culture. Today she talks 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.
