In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Anna Burckhardt looks at Clara Porset’s Butaque (c. 1957) and sees both a pivotal Latin American design object and a window into the Mexican craft traditions that inspired it.

Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
