Event description
If the Cups Could Talk: Pottery in Victorian Painting and Literature

About this Event

What can ceramics tell us about the virtue of a George Eliot heroine or a Dickensian hero? Let Dr. Rachel Gotlieb walk you through some well-known novels and paintings of the Victorian period to see how authors and artists used pottery and porcelain to provide insight into the characters they portrayed.

This richly illustrated talk will explain how depictions of ceramics played a central role in moralizing and decorating Victorian society.

NOTE: Non-members can join the CSDA/CCAD when registering for this event and save the $10 on the ticket fee.
