Wall painting "Peony spray with parrot", H 120 cm
It could be argued that artists from the MEISSEN® Manufactory have caused porcelain painting to flourish as never before. It is truly the case that flower and fruit painting have evolved into distinctive genres over a long period of on-going tradition. Their history extends from the search for secret paint formulae, through naturalistic portrayals after the manner of Maria Sibylla Merian in the Marcolini period, to the modern works of Meissen artists today, a process that has helped sustain the spirit of three centuries of the finest European porcelain painting. This gorgeously coloured wall painting depicts magnolia sprays in all their splendour. Their beautiful blooms were frequently admired as harbingers of their exotic cultures in the 17th and 18th centuries. And thus it was that they effectively replicated the passage of porcelain from Orient to Occident. The parrot could surely tell the whole story.
