Depicting the famous painting Christ in the Temple (1881) by Heinrich Hofmann (German, 1824-1911), the work is made entirely of enameled porcelain.  For over 250 years, Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (i.e. Royal Porcelain Factory), or KPM, collaborated with Germany’s finest painters and sculptures to create some of the most technically perfect works of porcelain ever made. KPM would often collaborate with artists like Hofmann, who would supervise craftsmen and artists to make authorized works. This large plaque is no exception. Faithful to the original in fine detail and luminosity.
