Romero Britto: always sunny in the heart.

Portrait of the artist Romero Britto With its multi-colored cheerful pictures and sculptures the Brazilian artist, born in 1963, filled the lives of many of his collectors with joy and hope. Celebrities such as Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi may be included in the list of Romero Britto’s customers, as well as actors and the Kennedy clan or Barack Obama. No wonder, that the works of the pop art artist are directly connected with the pioneers of this style, like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.

Pop art developed in the early 60s as a counterpoint to the abstract expressionism of the postwar period and made use of elements of everyday life and the simple language of comics. The everyday life objects are collected into artworks.

With black-framed color surfaces Romero Britto stylized image subjects to precise figures which live without illusion of depth or plasticity by its colourfulness and direct appeal to the emotions of the viewer. He designed color surfaces with geometrical patterns such as lines, circles and hatchings. So they retained the characteristics of a comic strip and told every viewer phantastic stories.

Today Britto’s works are sold for more than EUR 10,000.

Ceramic product made from kaolin, quartz and feldspar.

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.
