The Porcelain Collection, Dresden, and other prominent international museums as well as private collections illustrate the creative accomplishments of Adam Friedrich von Lowenfinck (1714-1754), one of the most significant painters of ceramic in the 18th century. He began his career in 1728 at the porcelain manufactory Meissen, which he left a few years later in order to escape the restrictions imposed on his artistic development and the difficult working conditions in the painting rooms. His adventurous path led him to various faience manufacturers, including Bayreuth, Ansbach, Fulda, Hochst and Strasburg-Haguenau. Due to his exceptional creative ability, but also through deftness and unscrupulousness, Lowenfinck ultimately rose from a simple journeyman to the position of manufactory director. Renowned for his fantastic world of colourfully iridescent and fairy-tale mythical creatures, he deeply influenced and shaped the ceramic painting of the time.
