The Anderson C. Bouchelle Heart for the Study of International Ornamental Arts and its adjacent gallery, contain over 600 objects from the museum’s collections. The collection is among the most visible areas of gathering in the museum because the works are displayed alongside work and sculpture of comparable eras or origin in galleries located all through the museum. My hope is that over time I can educate my collectors to have a deeper appreciation for the artwork and a better understanding of what it’s that pulls them to a particular piece.
After this, came the Rococo faculty which gave an enormous impetus to decorative crafts akin to furnishings-making, home furnishings, glass, and textiles. The Decorative Arts Assortment at the Mint numbers over 12,500 objects, and contains superb furniture, silver, and glass.
In addition to the everlasting exhibition, the museum regularly hosts a wide range of different exhibitions – Latvian and overseas. These hours and days spent with our paper dolls and our imaginations are such treasured reminiscences. In 2003, the museum turned part of the National Museum of Art, Structure and Design.
As an artist, I believe ornamental artwork is a chunk that is made purely for ornamental purposes. The strongest space is the decorative oriental art, together with crockery (ceramics and porcelain), glassware, furnishings, textiles, gold and silverware, metal work, ivory, leatherwork, nativities, art work on paper, and a few portray and sculpture.
A glass chimney encloses the burner and rises from the middle of a glass baluster-shaped shade that’s typically frosted and typically lower with ornamental motifs. At present, the museum administers 4 branches: Textile museum in Česká Skalice, Kamenice nad Lipou castle with a study depository of furnishings, porcelain exposition in Klášterec nad Ohří, and Josef Sudek Gallery in Prague.
