Renaissance Maiolica: Painted Pottery for Shelf and Table at The Met Fifth Avenue

This exhibition of Renaissance maiolica, drawn exclusively from The Met’s world-renowned collection, celebrates the publication of Maiolica, Italian Renaissance Ceramics in The Metropolitan Museum of Art by Timothy Wilson. As Wilson writes, “Painted pottery, at its most ambitious, is a serious form of Italian Renaissance art, with much to offer those interested in the wider culture of this astoundingly creative period.” This creativity was applied to a vast range of practical objects. The exhibition includes tableware and serving vessels, desk ornaments, storage containers, devotional objects, as well as sculpture, all made in painted and tin-glazed earthenware.

 

Exhibitions are free with Museum admission.
