Maladie de porcelain

August the Strong was obsessed with porcelain, he thirsted after its beauty, collecting thousands of objects, very few of which were practical everyday objects according to today’s understanding. And so, the Dresden Porzellansammlung presents not only the finest china but also precious vases, groups of figures and life-sized sculptures, modelled after the animals owned by the Saxon king.
