Lecture, Mon 20 Mar 2017


Speaker: Jane Gardiner. The lecture will consider the importance of Dutch and English Delftware in the history of European pottery, and how it dominated 17th century ceramic production. It will begin with a brief history of tin-glazed earthenware, and go on to discuss the emergence of Delft as a major production centre. It will demonstrate the impact of Chinese blue and white porcelain on the wares of both countries, along with other stylistic development, such as the “flower pyramids”, pharmacy and commemorative wares, and the development of the “blue-dash” charger.

Jane trained at the Victoria and Albert Museum and went on to become a Research Assistant and Lecturer in the V&A Education Department. In 1987 she was invited to join Sotheby’s Institute as tutor of 17th and 18th Century Decorative Art, going on to become a Senior Lecturer and a Deputy Director of Sotheby’s U.K. She continues to lecture for both organisations, as well as NADFAS. Her areas of specialisation are early European Ceramics and Glass and 18th Century European Design.
