There is a long tradition of pining for the far-away in European porcelain. Three centuries ago, artists at Meissen based their first models of Chinese, Japanese and Persian citizens on travel reports and copperplate engravings.

 

Europe’s outward-looking princes surrounded themselves with images of distant civilisations, whilst the nimbus of the Orient was captured in figures from the Arabian Nights. The 21st century, meanwhile, sees Indian artist twosome Thukral & Tagra bring the far-away onto Meissen porcelain in a new guise. Conspicuous shapes, exotic colour schemes and fanciful scenes adorn their pieces and also act as an antidote to pining for places we are unable to visit at present on account of the pandemic.
