The Four Continents


An exhibition tracing the allegorical representation of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America on decorative objects since the 5th century. The more than 100 objects on display include ceramics, coins, glassware, maps, textiles, globes, wallpaper, and engravings. The 17th and 18th centuries are the main focus of the exhibition because of Europe's discovery of the New World. Most of the objects on view were formerly in the private collection of  James Hazen Hyde.
