The third exhibition in the Making History series, this display highlights the museum’s rich collection of paintings, works on paper and ceramic objects by various members of the acclaimed Boyd dynasty and their close collaborators. With a focus on the achievements of the 1940s and 50s, the exhibition’s highlights include elegant art nouveau-style pots by family patriarch Merric Boyd, Arthur Boyd’s masterful group portrait painted in 1946 and a vibrant array of domestic ware produced by artists working for the celebrated Arthur Merric Boyd Pottery in the postwar period.
