    Central to the ceramics collection at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam are the vases and pots created by Lucie Rie and Hans Coper, two expats who worked together in London following World War II and had a lasting impact on the 20th-century studio pottery movement. Each of the collection’s extraordinary pieces by Rie and Coper has been photographed for this book, which explores the collection’s history as well as the life and work of the artists themselves. The two potters played an integral role in the museum’s approach to collecting, and the museum was likewise crucial to their international recognition and continuing influence.
