Art Nouveau Innovation: Danish Porcelain from an American Collector
June 12, 2021 - November 28, 2021Ann K. Walch-Chan Gallery
Don’t miss the final weeks of this dazzling exhibition. It features 75 ceramics that represent the Art Nouveau style of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This period was revolutionary for Danish porcelain manufacturers Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grøndahl. Like many Art Nouveau artists, the designers and painters of these companies reflected an interest in the natural world and cultures from around the globe. Their influence reached across Europe and created an international market for Danish porcelain. The objects in this exhibition, amassed over two generations, are from a private collection that spans nearly 250 years of Danish porcelain.
This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Danish America, Elk Horn, Iowa.
