Ceramics by Leon Volkmar
Visitors to the Greenwich Historical Society’s Permanent Collections Gallery can view the installation of ceramic vessels by artist Leon Gambetta Volkmar (1879-1959). Volkmar was a friend of artist Elmer Livingston MacRae, and in the 1910s and ‘20s his distinctive vases could often be seen in the Bush-Holley House, forming the base for floral arrangements designed by Constant Holley MacRae.
