The porcelain decorative arts at Museum of Arts & Sciences (MOAS) are from some of the finest traditions the world over. And the paintings on them are remarkable works for art in-and-of themselves. This exhibition highlights these miniature scenes, some of which were painted by highly-regarded painters, and discusses this mostly forgotten technique that was once considered essential for the well-dressed table.
