Says Jason T. Busch, gallery director: “As the gallery further develops its contemporary art program, and seeks connections between past and present, Jason Jacques and I have initiated the sale for established collectors, and those beginning on the journey, to acquire some of the best European ceramics of the last 150 years.”
Objects selected for the sale, made by French, Italian, German, English, Hungarian, and Dutch firms, are noteworthy in the quality of their realistic modeling, arresting glazes, and technical prowess. The objects have been collected over several decades, reflecting works rarely seen by masters of the Art Pottery Renaissance.
