Porcelain Fever: The birth of European porcelain
Since the introduction of Asian porcelain to Europe, there has been a frenzied fascination with these rare objects and, from the outset, an irrepressible drive to rediscover the porcelain recipe. In October this year, the exhibition Porcelain Fever opens at Keramiekmuseum Princessehof, telling this birth story of European porcelain and its development throughout the eighteenth century. A story illustrated by fantastic examples of Asian ceramics and Meissen porcelain from the collection of Augustus the Strong in Dresden and from the Vincennes/Sèvres factory, which was under the patronage of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour.
