Limoges: European ceramics
The city of Limoges, in collaboration with the Musée national Adrien Dubouché in Limoges and the Réunion des musées nationaux, nods proudly to its centuries-old reputation as a porcelain center with an exhibition about European ceramics. If objects from Limoges abound, the show, which includes over four hundred pieces dating from the seventeenth century to the present day, also investigates the eight other major European production centers brought together by UNI C (the Urban Network for Innovation in Ceramics): Aveiro, Portugal; Castellón, Spain; Cluj-Napoca, Romania; Delft, Holland; Faenza, Italy; Pécs, Hungary; Séville, Spain; and Stoke-on-Trent, England. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition:
