Art History

Created in eighteenth-century Naples by leading sculptors of the late Baroque era, the angels and crche figures are made of painted terracotta, finely carved wood, exquisite fabrics, and other materials. The Museum owes its collection of crche figures to the generosity of Loretta Hines Howard, who supervised its yearly installation from the time of her gift in 1964 until her death in 1982. Her family continues her good work.
