Majolica Mania: Transatlantic Pottery in England and the United States, 1850–1915 celebrates the colorful and wildly imaginative nineteenth-century English and American majolica. Technically innovative, this ceramic ware was functional and aesthetic, modern and historicizing, and its subject matter reflected a range of Victorian preoccupations, from botany and zoology to popular humor and the macabre. The exhibition also explores the considerable impact of majolica, from wares used in domestic conservatories and dining rooms to monumental pieces displayed at world’s fairs.
