Museum of Fine Arts Collection: Eighteenth Century Pink Porcelin Pitcher and Wash Basin


The Museum of Fine Arts is the first art museum I ever went to. I remember being fascintated with this 18th century porcelain. I have no idea why, but ever since I remember seeing this for the first time -- 6th grade? 12th grade? sooner? I don't know -- I jus tknow that  I have totally been in love with all the porcelain from 1700s Europe, especially this pink pitcher and wash bowl. I love the color, I love the painting, I love the gold accents. Every time I walk by the exhibit I remember how much I love it. For some reason I'm really drawn to it.
