The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art Wins Bronze IPPY Award

The Gallery is proud to announce that The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art: Selections from the Linda Leonard Schlenger Collection and the Yale University Art Gallery has been awarded the bronze medal in the fine arts category of the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY). The first volume to thoroughly examine postwar ceramic sculpture alongside other fine art of the period, this catalogue demonstrates that the most exceptional ceramics share the formal sophistication of celebrated works in more conventional media. In her review of the related exhibition, Susan Hodara of the New York Times noted that the publication “support[s] the curators’ contention that ceramic sculptures should be fully integrated into the canon of modern and contemporary fine art.” With over 130 illustrations, including installation photographs of the fall 2015 exhibition, the catalogue encourages readers to discover unexpected connections between ceramics and paintings, sculptures, and prints and illuminates surprising relationships among artists and their artworks. Several departments across the museum contributed to making this publication such a success—from the authors and editors to the designers and photographers. Pick up your copy in the Bookstore today!
