The Marguerite Jones Harbert and John M. Harbert III Curator of Decorative Arts Dr. Anne Forschler-Tarrasch examines Wedgwood’s prolific medallion production. In her talk, she includes the “Illustrious Moderns” series as well as its most
well-known medallion, the Slave Medallion, made in 1787. She places medallion production within the context of Wedgwood’s history and comments on function, design, and artists involved.
