Intro
In July 2017, an extraordinarily diverse, exquisite, and extensive collection of African ceramics from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century from the collection of HRH Franz, Duke of Bavaria was given to Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum as a donation and permanent loan. It includes exemplary works from various regions of Africa with an emphasis on ceramic vessels. In its scope, the precision of its selection, and the quality of the individual works, this collection, which HRH Franz, Duke of Bavaria has been building since the 1970s, is considered one of the most internationally significant collections of African ceramics.
