Event Description

Born in Lunéville, and apprenticed at Sèvres for a short time, Gerverot left France in 1766 to begin an ambitious career as a wandering porcelain decorator, colour chemist and arcanist. His travels first took him to numerous manufactories in Germany and the Netherlands, where his highly unconventional style of painting “birds of fantasy” soon began to evolve, one which can best be appreciated by the examples on Höchst, Weesp and Loosdrecht porcelain featured in this lecture.Lecturer: Charlotte Jacob-Hanson
