European Sculpture & Decorative Arts

The fifty thousand objects in the Museum's comprehensive and historically important collection of European sculpture and decorative arts reflect the development of a number of art forms in Western European countries from the early fifteenth through the early twentieth century. The holdings include sculpture in many sizes and media, woodwork and furniture, ceramics and glass, metalwork and jewelry, horological and mathematical instruments, and tapestries and textiles. Ceramics made in Asia for export to European markets and sculpture and decorative arts produced in Latin America during this period are also included among these works.

Camellia Trellis is reimagined from an early 18th-century silk panel crafted in China for the French market. The original, now in The Met collection, is painted with delicate camellia and lotus flowers among blooming vines. Such drapeable silks, fashioned for diverse applications such as dresses, elegant fan leaves, and decorative screen panels, characterized the final phase of China’s ancient silk trade with the West.

Seraphine Embroidered Silk draws its inspiration from a luxurious robe à la française in The Met’s Costume Institute. The exemplary 18th-century British garment, crafted from hand-painted silk, with a dramatic silhouette that tapers at the waist and billows at the hips, epitomizes the insatiable baroque opulence of its era. Seraphine, in turn, captures the essence of these qualities, with its exquisite floral embroidery adorning a foundation of 100% pure silk. A true showstopper, Seraphine is the embodiment of timeless elegance, poised to stand as the centerpiece of any space.
