Porcelain of Unsurpassed Wedgwood Displayed in Moscow

The All-Russian Museum of Folk Arts and Crafts holds an exhibition of porcelain works by the legendary English company Wedgwood. 

The visitors will see unique porcelain items, including the Wedgwood fireplace and porcelain painting by the animalist George Stubbs, items from the well-known Green Frog tea set of Catherine II, and two medallion portraits of Catherine II and Peter I. The exhibition also presents modern art works by the Wedgwood company.

The porcelain artist Josiah Wedgwood was an inventor and entrepreneur at the same time. He invented new technologies which exceeded Chinese porcelain and were absolute innovations in some way. 

The central part of the exhibition hall is arranged like an English town street of the late 18th century - early 19th century, with its houses and interiors decorated with Wedgwood porcelain. Thus visitors will plunge into the atmosphere of English aristocracy. One of interiors will depict Wedgwood studio. 

The exhibition runs from November 15 to February 1, 2015.
