During the late 19th century, artistic rebellion against mass production took many forms. In the world of design, shapes reflecting nature and growth, experiments with techniques, and influences from non-European cultures led to the flowering of Art Nouveau. Focusing on ceramics from the United States and Europe, this exhibition explores the artists and innovations that led to a new international style. Learn more on our blog, the Oculus, HERE.
