A Civilized Table: The Visual Power of 19th-Century Transferware
During this gallery conversation, visitors will have an opportunity to see several pieces of 19th-century transferware in the Krannert Art Museum collection that are not typically on view. Kirstin Gotway, a curatorial intern and doctoral student in art history, will talk about common themes found in transferware decoration and how these themes reflect the growing middle-class and international markets for ceramics. She will discuss makers’ marks and manufacture of transferware from this period.
