  • PROVENANCE:
    Private collection, Central California

    Franz Bischoff received his early artistic training in Vienna and later
    in Dresden, studying the popular art of china painting. In 1883 he
    emigrated to New York and sooner after to Pittsburgh, where we worked in
    a glass factory. After two subsequent moves and further practice in
    china painting, he started the Bischoff School of Ceramic Art in New
    York and Detroit. He maintained a studio in Dearborn, Michigan,
    conducting classes from there and in several major cities. During his
    14 years in Michigan, his work in pottery received the highest honors in
    the World's Fair Exhibitions in Chicago (1893), St. Louis (1904) and
    Paris (1900).
