    The Memphis Group is famous for creating the most radical and attention-getting designs of the postmodern period, upending most of the accepted standards of how furniture should look. Its story begins in 1980, when Ettore Sottsass, then a beacon of Italian postmodernism, tapped a coterie of younger designers to develop a collection for the upcoming Milan Furniture Fair. Their mission was to boldly reject the stark minimalism of the 1970s and shatter the rules of form and function. The group decided to design, produce and market its own collection, one that wouldn't be restricted by concerns like functionality and so-called good taste. Its debut at Milan's 1981 Salone del Mobile drew thousands of viewers and caused a major stir in design circles. The group remained active until the 1990s. On 1stDibs, shop a variety of Memphis Group furniture and decorative objects.

    A group of paintings is called a gallery. While the term gallery is used in the sense of place for displaying art, a gallery can also refer to a collection of paintings, sculptures or other types of art. 

    It’s worth noting that there are other types of groups of paintings that pertain to a given artist’s intention.

    Paintings that are made of more than one part are called polyptychs. Diptychs and triptychs are types of polyptychs. A painting made up of two panels is called a diptych, while a triptych refers to a work that consists of three panels. In some cases, a diptych or a triptych might comprise a single scene. Alternatively, the multiple panels might not depict a single scene at all but may be connected in some other sense.

    A series refers to a group of paintings, sculptures, prints or some other kind of art in which the individual pieces are similar and related according to medium, subject matter and/or some other characteristic.

    If you’re working on arranging wall art in your home, a good option would be to create a grouping of pieces, and a spacious wall allows you to spread them out. Smaller areas, like those between windows and doors, are the perfect places to display your more petite pieces. These can also be deployed in a cluster as a gallery wall.
