Italian Renaissance Maiolica
This 15th- and 16th-century earthenware represents classical mythology, perspective, family life and other themes.
17th- and 18th-century earthenware. Themes include early medicine, family life, history of the monarchy, the Great Fire of London, and the plague years.
The history of porcelain as it developed in Asia and its remarkable influence on the West.
Porcelain was first made in Japan in the 17th century, following the discovery of deposits of kaolin (china clay). Three styles of porcelain were produced: blue and white, brilliant white, and multicoloured.
The European response to the importation of Asian porcelain. Early scientific experiments, alchemy, the Enlightenment, centralism, baroque, and rococo. Collections include work from Germany, Austria, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
A wonderful collection of tiny 18th-century scent receptacles, which leads to a discussion of their themes, owners, makers and collectors.
Work from 18th-century England and the continent. Themes include the influence of France and French style, the importance of nature and its influence on embellishment.
Character figures from the popular 16th-century Italian theatrical productions featuring Harlequin, Columbine, and Pierrot to name a few. This collection represents themes of theatre, dining, politics and dance.
