Event Description

Join Ruth Grim, Chief Curator/Gary R. Libby Curator of Art in the Bouchelle Changing Gallery for a talk on the exhibition Minor Masterpieces: Porcelain Painted Scenes from the Collection on view through December 4. The art of painting on porcelain dates back centuries and is believed to have originated in China. However, European porcelain from the 17th and the 19th centuries is famous for the beautifully rendered miniature painted scenes and decorations that were applied to the serving wares and other objects purchased by the wealthy. These porcelain painters were often considered fine artists in their own right. Examples from Austria, France, England, and America will be examined as will the choices of subject matter in these small paintings.
