KPM plaques and paintings on porcelain produced by Berlin Konigliche Porzellan Manufaktur (KPM) were a complete phenomenon of European artistic culture, developed throughout the 19th century up until the beginning of the 20th century. These treasures are a rare find in today's artistic world. KPM Plaques: Gaining an Insight into the Art of Painting on Porcelain by Sean Shakrovski and Vera Rininberg covers a broad variety of questions and concepts never-before addressed in any literature. The development of KPM plaques is discussed in direct relation to the development of art in those times, as well as to the changes in artistic styles and tastes. The book also gives detailed advice on the recognition of false marks and answers a variety of common questions regarding authenticity as well as comparing and recognizing quality of painting. In addition, the book is richly illustrated with photos of plaques and miniatures, many of which are rare and are being presented to the public for the first time. Most of these paintings on KPM and continental plaques are described in detail. A unique insight into the art of painting on porcelain, this book will prove useful for anyone who would like to investigate the arts past, present, and future. Collecting paintings on porcelain plaques, particularly those produced the KPM factory, has become quite a popular and widespread hobby. KPM Plaques: Gaining an Insight into the Art of Painting on Porcelain addresses many questions asked by old and new collectors, and discusses information relating to the history of plaques and miniatures, various subject descriptions, value determinants and techniques in distinguishing the authenticity of KPM plaques. Illustrated with hundreds of high-quality photographs, this book is like a work of art itself.
