Drawn from the Kansas City Art Institute’s permanent collection, this exhibition was based on the Cummins Collection of Sue Ware ceramics from Japan. Sue Ware was produced from the third to the seventh centuries A.D. and represented a time of great innovation in Japanese ceramics –– including the first time a wheel was used and the first time stoneware clay was taken to high-fire temperatures in Anagama kilns.

This selection of portraits from KCAI's permanent collection illustrated three different approaches to portraiture: academic romanticism in the works of Jean Jacques Henner and John Douglas Patrick; Moses Soyer’s social realism and less academic approach to painting; and the classicism which pervades illustrator Daniel MacMorris's depictions of high society.
