Danish porcelain factories at the turn of the 20th century combined artistry and technological innovation at an unprecedented level of excellence. Both Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grøndahl explored new forms, new techniques, and new artistic influences. Like many artists of the Art Nouveau period, the designers and painters of Danish porcelain reflected an interest in the natural world and cultures from around the globe. This exhibition brings together a wide variety of beautiful, original works from the 1880s through the 1920s. All meticulously researched, many pieces in this exhibition were first unveiled at international expositions and World’s Fairs. All pieces are from a private collection assembled through two generations.

Presented in the Main Floor Gallery and sponsored by The Danish Home of Croton-on-Hudson and the Albert Victor Ravenholt Fund.
