Miniature Porcelain Pictures "Great Composers of Music History"

Great music is timeless. Even if in the course of music history there arose diverse styles and directions, the composers of each epoch have always worked on the basis of their precursors. The history of music is a dialogue across the centuries. Just as diverse are the references: Bach and Handel - the two great composers of the Baroque - although have never met, but accurately perceived musical creativity of each other. Although Beethoven was completely deaf at an early stage, he created the most powerful compositions of all time. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - the "prodigy" of music history - is still regarded as the greatest genius of classical music.

Now you can take the great geniuses of music history as a unique culture gallery to your home: each miniature portrait was transferred entirely by hand on fine Thuringian porcelain and fired 2 times. The porcelain pictures are mounted on fabric passe-partout and put in an atmospheric, handmade Ramin wood frame with veneered poplar burl wood and are dust-proof glazed. Format of each 9.7 x 10.5 cm. On the back of each picture there is a biography with the most important life data.

Four pictures in a set: Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791).

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.
