"Art is the elixir of my life", as Prof. Heinz Werner himself once put it. It was this sense of passion that made him one of the greatest porcelain painters of the present age. The "Fairy on the Moon" wall picture combines themes to be found in many of Werner's works: romantic, jocular scenes from the realm of make-believe and mythical beings, a little dream-like and quite often painted with a devilish twinkle in his eye. Lambent overglaze yellow envelops the - intricately brushed - moon and fairy in this wall picture to give it a watercolour-like appearance. Sifted gilt-effect colouring in the background intensify the scene's radiant atmosphere along with areas of gilding.
