Empty Vessels explored the psychology of Margaret Lawrence as collector, highlighting her inquisitive nature and her eccentric collecting style. Margaret’s collection recreated the traditional base of the artistic sensibilities of her period, and covers primarily functional pieces including jugs, urns, cylinders, amphorae, cups, ovoids, platters, vases, cups, teapots, bowls, etc. Many of the works selected from the collection were displayed for the first time in this exhibition.
