The exhibition Queen Mary and the Emergence of Modern Ceramics in Greater Romania renders homage to a tasteful and sensitive Queen who full-heartedly supported the reinterpretation of Romanian folk art in a modern key.
The initiative enjoyed the unconditional support of major Romanian artists such as Camil Ressu, Nicolae Tonitza, Ștefan Dimitrescu, Petru Remus Troteanu, Gh. Ionescu-Doru, and Nora Steriadi. They were among the collaborators of the very first urban ceramics workshops in Bucharest, Băneasa, Turda, and Satu-Mare.
Ceramics produced in these centres share a fresh interpretation of traditional motifs; artists managed to lend their creations a touching authenticity similar to that of folk art. Genuinely respectful of craftsmanship and the true spirit of folk art, they avoided all formal approach and developed a playful decorative vocabulary.

An exhibition supported by the Ministry of Culture and National Identity on the occasion of the Great Union Centennial.
