The stylised tulips painted in sepia, a genre of painting with a long tradition at MEISSEN, have now been applied to three classic lidded vases. The minimalist seeming floral paintings appear as a silhouette on the different vases and only reveal their extraordinary craftsmanship upon closer inspection. For sepia painting, the artist is only working with a single colour, which means that the intensities that will appear later and give the design a sense of structural depth are created solely by applying more or less paint. At the same time, the conscious omission of other colours emphasizes the detailed nature of the drawings themselves, made possible only with precise brushworks and trained abstraction.
