Focusing on Philadelphia's prominent role in the history of Colonial America, this exhibition catalogue surveys the decorative and fine arts produced during the initial settlement of the region. The rich history of craftsmanshipâ€”including furniture, textiles, ceramics, glass and metalwork, portraits, and book illustrationsâ€”as well as intellectual and scientific pursuits in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries are explored, all in context of Pennsylvania's evolution into an international cultural and economic force.
