This event has ended.

Technically experimental and aesthetically ambitious, the vases made by French potters in the years around 1900 pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium. The recently acquired Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection of European Art Pottery includes pieces by the master ceramists Ernest Chaplet, Auguste Delaherche, and Jean Carriès, and works that are imposing in size, beautiful in shape, and dazzling in their glazes. These works are shown with others that inspired them, ranging from Asian ceramics to German stoneware.
