Conversation Piece

curated by Alessandro Laita + Chiaralice Rizzi

A conversation piece is an informal group portrait, part of the pictorial English tradition, (beginning in the early 1700s). Here, groups of people are portrayed engaging in activities or conversations, very often in a landscape. Over the years the expression “conversation piece” acquired a different meaning by coming to identify different types of objects, that were perceived as an incitement to start a conversation about them.
