"Viktor Schreckengost and 20th-Century Design"
2000-11-12 until 2001-02-04
Cleveland Museum of Art
Cleveland, OH, USA

For most of his 93 years, Viktor Schreckengost has produced pioneering work in painting, sculpture, ceramics, and industrial design—including the first cab-over-engine truck and Americas first modernist dinnerware, the Manhattan Dinner Service of 1933. The large punch bowl he produced in 1930 for Eleanor Roosevelt, known as The Jazz Bowl, has become one of the signature pieces of American Art Deco and an icon of the Jazz Age.

This exhibition, the first full-scale retrospective of Schreckengosts work, will include drawings, watercolors, ceramics, childrens toys, and bicycles. It will also feature striking examples of his engaging, inventive, often satirical sculptures in clay. The catalogue will demonstrate Schreckengosts role as a major contributor to the history of 20th-century design. Organized by the CMA and curated by Henry Adams with Henry Hawley.
