From Porcelain to Painting: The Treasures of Dresden

23 – 27 March 2017

In the eighteenth century, Dresden was known as the “Florence of the North” as an unprecedented host of Italian artists and craftsmen were drawn to the Saxon Court. Elector Augustus the Strong made Saxony’s capital a magnificent one by commissioning stunning baroque architecture and collecting widely. Restored since the bombing raids of 1945, Dresden is once more one of Germany’s most picturesque and culturally rewarding cities with decorative and fine art works of international repute acquired by Saxon electors and Polish kings. We will also visit Meissen, Saxony’s oldest town, legendary for its exquisite, world-renowned porcelain.
