Wall painting of a "Park landscape with basket of fruit and sculpture", 60 x 35 cm

Their narrow portrait format instils a great sense of depth into these two landscape paintings after works by French artist Charles Dugasseau (1812-1885). It is a format that heightens the tension between profuse still life arrangements in the foreground and park landscapes extending back to the horizon. The colouring of vibrantly and boldly rendered fruit combines with a rather more pastel scheme for the landscapes in the background to conjure up a mixture of tranquillity and the joys of summer. Meissen artist Steffen Mikosch has succeeded marvellously well in reproducing Dugasseau's brushlines on porcelain - a particularly challenging "canvas" - and in interpreting the Frenchman's works without erasing their identity. The two paintings are suitably ennobled by means of frames enriched with gilded texturing.

Summer fruit is opulently laid out on the lawn in mouth-watering fashion. Fiery red hollyhock in full bloom provides a fitting backdrop behind which a soothing garden landscape can be sensed. Echoing the alignment of the shrub, a sculpture of a woman accompanied by a lion watches over the celestially peaceful idyll from a high pedestal. Steffen Mikosch has taken this typically romanticised ideal from the mid-nineteenth century and, with the aid of bewitching nuances ranging from chromatically intense to watercolour pale, expertly re-enacted it on porcelain to yield a place far removed from all problems and social pressures.
