Description

After Balthasar Denner (German, 1685-1749), these works are a pair of large KPM painted porcelain plaques, and show portraits of a bearded man and an elderly lady, each of which is set within a giltwood frame.

Balthasar was a highly regarded German portrait artist active in the first half of the eighteenth century. He painted numerous portraits of elderly figures in particular, and tended to distill his compositions, focusing purely on the stern, aged, textured faces and features of his subjects, with little in the way of a paraphernalia or other distractions, and with a simple dark black background, with little else lit besides the faces who look back out of the canvas.

Impressed with KPM and sceptre mark, and impressed with further marks and numerals, these fine plaques excently invoke Denner's work, rendering his meticulous and highly detailed and unapologetic manner of painting into fine painted porcelain.
