This Spectacular Neo-Classical Porcelain Wall Plaque, Executed in The Style Of Angelica Kaufmann. Although unmarked, from research, we believe it to be of Austrian origin and dates approximately 1890-1910.

The Neo-Classical Central Scene, that is partial transfer and hand painted, exhibits Two Grecian Lovers. The gentleman is wearing a robe of green and red, and the lady to his left is wearing a robe of blue and white. Both subjects are surrounded by three cherubs amongst the clouds. On the foot rim (on the backside), there are two holes which were intended for hanging purposes. This is found on all wall plaques.

COMMENT: This Wonderful Decorative Porcelain Wall Plaque Captures and Exhibits All The Essence of Angelica Kaufmann Porcelain. Although unsigned, artist and factory wise, this porcelain piece is still top quality and is worthy of a good home or collection.

WHO WAS ANGELICA KAUFMANN? Most people are led to believe that if a piece of porcelain is signed Angelica Kaufmann that she actually hand painted it and signed it. Quite to the contrary! This is not the case; rather many porcelain factories drew inspiration from her artistic merit on canvas.

She was a great Neoclassical oil painter who was Swiss born and painted in Italy. She was born Maria Anne Angelica Catharine Kaufmann in Coire, Switzerland on Oct. 30, 1741 and died on Nov. 5, 1807.

This painter is not to be confused with the Austrian painter Angelika Kaufmann who was born in Carinthia, Austria in 1935. (Note the first name spelling is different). The inspiration for hand painting on porcelain actually comes from the earlier artist, Angelica Kaufmann (1741-1807) and not Angelika Kaufmann who was Austrian born in1935.

CONDITION: This Large Porcelain Wall Plaque is in very good condition considering its age. It has a tiny rim chip at the back that does not show on the front and has some rubbing or wear to the gold gilding. There are no stains, no cracks nor restoration.
