Fingerprints of the Artist

Fingerprints Of The Artists - European Terra-Cotta Sculpture
European Terra-Cotta Sculpture from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections


“…Dating from the fifteenth through the twentieth century, the Sackler sculptures provide an unusually comprehensive historical overview of terra-cotta in post-medieval European Art…

…no one has ever attempted to make a comprehensive collection of terra-cottas, and to the best of my knowledge, there has never been an exhibition of terra-cottas that can begin to match the scope and quality of this collection…”
