This exceptional hand-painted porcelain plaque by KPM Berlin Royal Porcelain Manufactory depicts a young woman illuminated by candlelight. Skillfully executed, this plaque is exemplary of the creativity and technical genius of KPM's porcelain artists. Porcelain plaques are very difficult to produce, as ceramic paints do not attain their final color until after firing. Compositions such as this piece, with its delicate tones and warm lighting, are especially complex, making a KPM painting of this quality an exceptional find.

The complicated and exacting process of painting on porcelain became very popular in the nineteenth century, and artists were able to achieve incredible luminosity due to the translucent quality of the porcelain. KPM porcelain represented the height of technical and artistic achievement during this period, and plaques such as this one have become increasingly rare and highly sought after.
