Early maiolica market tester

Ground-breaking Mayfair exhibition takes rare focus on first examples of the technique

Early maiolica, those Italian pottery creations of the late 13th to early 16th centuries, could be due a revisit.

It is the istoriato pieces of the later 1500s, works of riotous colour which feature complex seascapes or mythological scenes, that tend to occupy the minds of collectors and enthusiasts. However, an exhibition at medieval specialist Sam Fogg seeks to redress the balance, focusing on the earliest examples of this technique and tracking its Quattrocento development.

Running from May 8-June 16, the Mayfair gallery’s exhibition Maiolica before Raphael showcases around 50 works made between c.1275 and 1500. The timeline of the show includes examples of the pottery that will be more familiar, featuring the brilliant white surfaces and polychrome decoration over the top that typifies the style.
