This exhibition features art pottery and modernist paintings by Jens Jensen (1898-1978), a Danish immigrant, modernist and pottery decorator for Cincinnati, Ohio’s Rookwood Pottery Company from 1928 to 1948. His pottery features a unique, modernist style not at all like other Rookwood pieces of that time. Examples of his colleagues’ work are included in the exhibition, in addition to Jensen’s cubist paintings.
