Putting into perspective the production of ceramics from the main production centres in Europe from the end of the 18th Century up to the modern day, thatâs the proposed aim of this exhibition. Put together on the Deputy-Mayor of Limogesâs request, it has been organized by the âmusÃ©e national de Porcelaine Adrien DubouchÃ©â? (Adrien DubouchÃ© National Porcelain Museum) and the âRÃ©union des musÃ©es nationauxâ? (National Museums Union).
The 450 objects show that this art form, which includes practical objects as much as sophisticated decorative pieces, has followed the major art movements throughout Europe. The numerous correlations that you will discover during the visit prove, if there was any doubt, the existence of common aesthetic tendencies throughout the whole of Europe for several centuries.
