Noble Basis for Extraordinary Works of Art

Paper, canvas, wood - most artists of past times preferred to immortalise themselves on these classic painting surfaces. After all, they guaranteed durability, could be decorated in many ways with different colours and were usually relatively cheap. From time to time, however, there were artists who wanted to stand out from the crowd with the sophistication of their works. To achieve this, they used neither canvas nor paper or wood as a painting surface but instead used the finest porcelain to immortalise themselves. Porcelain is a fired product made of kaolin, quartz, and feldspar, which is produced in a complex, multi-stage process. Since time immemorial, it has been hand-painted in important manufactories - so why not use the pure white surface of porcelain and create breathtakingly beautiful porcelain pictures on it?

Elaborate Porcelain Pictures Full of Lasting Colours

Many of today's famous porcelain paintings date back to the 19th century. For example, there are numerous works that originate directly from great porcelain manufactories. Meissen or KPM produced extraordinary pictures on porcelain, some of which are still preserved today and can be purchased for quite a significant amount of money. The fascinating thing about these works of art is the blaze of colours that is preserved to this day. That is because the colours are burnt into the material. And this does not only apply to the art treasures from the 19th century. The hand-made porcelain pictures at ars mundi also inspire with rich colours that you can enjoy not only today but for many years to come.
