Blue-and-White Delftware

Nurit Gur-Lavy, Untitled, 2014

Blue Delftware is the name given to white-glazed pottery painted in (mostly) blue, after the Dutch town of Delft where it originated in the 17th century in imitation of Chinese porcelain. The exhibition presents hundreds of ancient Delft tiles, vases, plates and more—as well as works by ten Israeli ("blue-and-white") artists who "corresponded" with Delft, including Raffi Lavie and Yair Garbuz, and by artists especially commissioned to create contemporary Delft tiles.
