The New Yorker's Andrea K.

Porcelain, No Simple Matter: Arlene Shechet and the Arnhold Collection now open at the Frick Collection in New York. The exhibition explores "the complex history of making, collecting, and displaying porcelain. Included are about one hundred pieces produced by the renowned Royal Meissen manufactory, which led the ceramic industry in Europe, both scientifically and artistically, during the early to mid-eighteenth century. Most of the works date from 1720 to 1745 and were selected by New York−based sculptor Arlene Shechet from the promised gift of Henry H. Arnhold. Twelve works in the exhibition are Shechet’s own sculptures — exuberant porcelain she made during a series of residencies at the Meissen manufactory in 2012 and 2013."
