Meissen Zoo Exhibition

Exhibition summary

Germany's Meissen Porcelain Works proclaimed the establishment of the Royal Porcelain Works in 1710, successfully producing Europe's first hard porcelain. This exhibition focuses on Meissen's animals. The Art Nouveau style, which was popular in the European arts and crafts industry from the late 19th century to the early 20th century, also influenced Meissen and was widely adopted from cups and saucers to statues. At the same time, in Meissen, techniques such as Yuzushita Aya, which is painted under the glaze, and Yukanakasai, which sinks the paint drawn from the top of the glaze, are frequently used, creating works of light and delicate colors. It was done.

On the other hand, works of art with animals as motifs have been produced regardless of age or region, but some of them are drawn or shaped to symbolize something, it is their own loveliness There were a variety of things that were produced to convey, and the same was true for Meissen. Especially the Art Nouveau animal works succeeded in expressing the suppleness of the animals from the pattern to the expression, and achieved a perfect balance of realism and loveliness. This exhibition is organized around such Art Nouveau works. In addition to porcelain and fixtures, catalogs and other materials will be exhibited, and new approaches will follow Meissen's shapes and decorations.
