Footnotes

  • Meissen's head painter, Ludwig Sturm was very traditional and under his direction most flower painting on Meissen was formal, in the manner of Deutsche Blumen. When Horst Brunneman took over as factory director in 1895, he realised a more modern approach was needed. While Sturm was unwilling to change his ways, Brunneman insisted the factory's senior flower painter, Julius Eduard Braunsdorf, be allowed to break with tradition. An experienced watercolour painter, Braunsdorf was given free range to decorate Meissen with flowers in a totally new, impressionistic manner. The new flower-painting style was well received at the Paris Exhibition in 1900.
