CreatorInternational Exposition of Industries and Achievement
DescriptionIn 1911, several ceramic pieces from the People’s University’s Art Academy were submitted to the International Exposition of Industries and Achievement in Turin, Italy by the American Woman’s League. The works were primarily those of noted ceramic artist Adelaide Robineau, including her stunning Scarab vase. The League was awarded the Grand Prize over exhibits from across Europe and Asia. The Committee on Awards also recommended that the Grand Prize be awarded to Mrs. Robineau, but Grand Prizes were only awarded to exhibits, not to individuals. This Certificate was presented to the League, along with a gold medal.
