A new exhibition at the porcelain collection in the Zwinger Palace presents fantastic worlds, which the painter Adam Friedrich von Löwenfinck conjured on 18th century European porcelain. Löwenfinck until now was only known to insiders.
He completed his training at the Meissen Porcelain Manufacture. After nearly 10 years he fled in 1736 in order to work without the hard daily pressure of the manufacture. For further seven manufactories his work is proven throughout his short but adventurous life .
His Meissen style influenced his later work , especially the chinoiserie. He also developed numerous own creations , such as Still Life with Flowers. He was one of the most original and versatile porcelain painters.
The exhibition brings together pieces from the Dresden porcelain collection and international public and private collections.
Duration: October 1, 2014 to February 22, 2015
