Uncorked! Wine, Objects & Tradition Online Exhibition
Join us in celebrating objects and imagery created in response to society’s love of wine! This exhibition, formerly displayed in the Winterthur Galleries (April 28, 2012 to January 6, 2013), continues here as a permanent virtual presentation. It includes the identical selection of wine-related materials drawn from the Winterthur collections and promised gifts.
Associated with religious ceremonies as well as entertainment, the beverage has been around for some 8,000 years. From glassware and cellarettes to song sheets and paintings, see how wine was marketed, consumed, and celebrated from the 1600s through the 1800s.
The exhibition was created by Winterthur's Senior Curator of Ceramics and Glass, Leslie B. Grigsby.
Raise a glass in toast to Uncorked! and enjoy the virtual exhibition.
