The stellar flower-head of the hydrangea species fittingly called "Fireworks" recalls a shower of sparks. Horst Bretschneider has managed particularly well to capture this splendid flower in his picture, executed in the tradition of "European Flower Painting". It was not until Johann Gregorius Höroldt (1696-1775) succeeded in expanding the range of overglaze colours in the first third of the 18th century that this style superseded the less complex "Indian" motifs based on oriental models. Bretschneider has used fine underglaze colours to create a visually very effective shadow around the hydrangea. Its bright, naturalistically painted flower-heads stand out against this background as though they were three-dimensional. A specialised type of overglaze decoration is adopted to spirit this effect onto the porcelain. The upshot is a captivatingly realistic interpretation of Nature.
