The beautiful design on this oblong scarf showcases original pieces of Italian pottery from the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection. Maiolica, a tin-glazed earthenware, reveals much about the culture and history of Renaissance Italy. Spectacularly colorful, these marvelous objects were often painted with scenes from classical mythology, history, or religion, but were generally made for use rather than decoration. The National Gallery of Art acquired the important William A. Clark collection of maiolica from the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 2015.
