Ceramic Art, Craft and Tales from Medieval Cyprus
Image["Highly decorated sgraffito ware dish"]
This exhibition presents a number of Cypriot pots and other objects from the collection of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, along with 8 from the Fitzwilliam Museum's own collection.
The exhibition is sponsored by Mr Denis Severis, a Greek Cypriot Cambridge alumnus, friend and long-standing benefactor of the Fitzwilliam Museum. Through the generous collaboration of the Leventis Museum, this exhibition enables us to celebrate Cyprus' presidency of the Council of the European Union this summer. And we also honour the Leventis family, in particular the late Mr Constantine (Dino) Leventis, who died in 2002.
