Wadsworth Atheneum

J. Pierpont Morgan, Collector: European Decorative Arts from the Wadsworth

This catalogue describes the exquisite collection of porcelain and other decorative pieces given to the museum by the well-known financier and collector J.P. Morgan. Associated mostly with New York, few people are aware that Morgan was born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut. Several essays illuminate the lives of the Morgan family in Hartford and their active involvement in the early years of the oldest public art museum in the United States.  79 color plates with many black and white images.
