Raffaello Santi was born around 1483 in Urbino. He received his first education with his father, an average painter of his hometown. He was student in Perugia, he went to Florence in 1504 than finally to Rome in 1508. Since 1511 he worked as Superintendent of the St. Peter's Church and curator of ancient monuments. After his death (1520) in the Pantheon, his burial occupied the great appreciation of his contemporaries.

Raffaelo was looking to create a unity between image and architecture. A few figures, illusion of depth space and new contrasts became the binding template for generations of painters. The "Sistine Madonna" is the monumental altar painting around 1514. In addition to the Madonna and religious images, there were also portraits, which were by their representative character of appearance to the official portrait type.

Porcelain is formed by turning or pressing. Figural representations are cast. Complex molds have to be cast in sections and then "applied". After molding, the pieces are dried and "burnt" at about 900 °C. After that, the glaze is applied and fired at temperatures between 1,240 °C and 1,445 °C. In major manufactures, the porcelain is painted by hand with each color separately and has to be burned in compliance with narrow temperature tolerances.

The porcelain was invented in China and became widespread in Europe in the 16th century. The first European porcelain factory was founded in Meissen in 1710.

Other famous European porcelain factories are Fürstenberg, Höchst, Schwarzburger Werkstätten, Lladró, Nymphenburg, KPM, Augarten, Sèvres, Limoges, Royal Copenhagen, Worcester. Individual factories label their products with the porcelain brands that serve to identify their origin.
