The adoration of the magi
01 Dec 1885 - 04 Sep 1951
As well as domestic ware, Anne Dangar also produced a number of ceramics specifically for exhibition, often based on designs by her great mentor, Albert Gleizes. Many of these can be identified by the inscription MSGD, combining their names (Moly-Sabata Gleizes Dangar), as in 'The adoration of the magi'.
