Fragile Beauty: Masterworks of Porcelain and Glass from the Collection

Bouchelle Changing Gallery
Open January 18, 2020 through October 2, 2020

Highlighting centuries of fine workmanship in porcelain and glass, this exhibition brings together some of the most beautiful pieces in these media to be found in the MOAS collection. Decorative arts are particularly well-represented in the Museum's collection and visitors will be impressed by the wealth of intricate detail and stunning craftsmanship displayed by these fragile, sculptural pieces. With references to artistic tastes of the past, they represent traditions in porcelain and glass that have long since given way to primarily streamlined Modernism.
