Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Maiden figure
Artist: Sèvres Factory
Creation Date: Late 19th century
Origin: France
Medium: Biscuit porcelain

This elegant biscuit porcelain figurine is a 19th century table decoration from France. Extravagant centerpieces were used to display a family’s wealth and power to their guests during meals. Paired with delicate porcelain dishes and expertly crafted confectionery desserts, these chefs were serving guests a feast not only for stomachs but for the eyes as well.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
