A new perspective on Meissen’s animal themed ceramics

Germany’s Meissen manufactory was founded in 1710 by royal decree, and was the first in Europe to successfully produce hard paste porcelain. This exhibition focuses on animals in Meissen porcelain. Animals have been incorporated into art of every era and region. Meissen animal pieces from the Art Nouveau period successfully capture the gracefulness of animals from their markings to their facial expressions, striking a perfect balance between realism and beauty. This exhibition is comprised mainly of works from that Art Nouveau period. In addition to porcelain and stoneware, catalogues and other materials allow visitors to consider Meissen’s approach to modelling and decoration in a new light.
