Politics and esthetics -- strange bedfellows, but the two add up to a beautiful and unusual exhibition in "Fragile Diplomacy: Meissen Porcelain for European Courts, ca. 1710-63," now at the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture. This impressive loan show combines early European porcelain with a history lesson on shifting alliances in the 18th century.
