Jason Jacques Gallery is pleased to announce an upcoming exhibition titled Georges Hoentschel: Stoneware Love Affair, devoted to the ceramics of Georges Hoentschel and other artist-potters associated with Jean Carriès. The exhibition will open from April 5th through April 25th, 2013 at the gallery located at 29 East 73rd Street, NYC. Hoentschel is best remembered as an interior designer and antiques dealer, whose prestigious clients included Robert de Montesquiou, Edmond de Goncourt, and J. Pierpont Morgan. Morgan’s collection of medieval and 18th-century furnishings, acquired from Hoentschel, was donated by the financier to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, forming the basis of its decorative arts department. These holdings will be the subject of a groundbreaking exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center in June 2013.
