Info

The desire to surround ourselves with beauty is universal and timeless. We have an innate tendency to transform the shape and decoration of even mundane items in an effort to satisfy our aesthetic aspirations. As cultural values, trends, and technologies shift from one era to the next, so do the objects that we create for everyday use and enjoyment at home. Focusing on objects from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries--from costly furnishings and paintings to inexpensive household necessities--this exhibition shows how the quest for color, texture, and splendor propels artful design.
