On view from April 4 through August 11, 2013 Bard Graduate Center presents Salvaging the Past: Georges Hoentschel and French Decorative Arts from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Based on the collection of J. Pierpont Morgan that entered the Metropolitan Museum in the early twentieth century, the exhibition has over 200 objects of medieval art and French eighteenth-century paneling, furniture, metalwork, textiles, paintings, and sculpture, as well as late nineteenth-century art pottery. The exhibition tells the story of the unique collection in four sections mainly from the Metropolitan’s holdings, with loans from other public and private collections in the United States and France.
