Floral painting on porcelain has a long tradition at the Meissen manufactory that has grown continually throughout the ages and continues on to this day. Based on the still life paintings of the Old Masters, roses began to appear as a motif in porcelain painting in 1740. Initially in bouquet form, the rose became popular as a single motif in the following Marcolini period. The graceful "MEISSEN Rose" was developed from these paintings in the Biedermeier period. The design corresponds to the particularly evocative still life paintings of flowers in the style of Georg Friedrich Kersting, a Dresden painter who was head of flower painting at MEISSEN at this time.
Although hugely influential on the style in this period, there are no designs that have been proven to be solely created by the artist himself.
