For the fifth time now, selected ceramists of Baden-Wurttemberg will be exhibiting their creations at Ludwigsburg Palace. The featured country in 2016 will be France. Built in 1709, the residential palace is one of the largest Baroque buildings in Europe that have been preserved in their original state. It houses two museums showcasing the respective collections of the Baden-Wurttemberg State Museum: the Ceramics Museum and the Fashion Museum. It was also used to accommodate the workshops of the Ludwigsburg Porcelain Manufactory, which was founded in 1758. The exhibitors, 14 from Baden-Wurttemberg and 9 from France, include eminent ceramics artists, some of whom are represented in some of the world’s most important museums. The Baden-Wurttemberg State Museum will be contributing a loan to a special presentation featuring the famous French ceramics artists Gilbert Portanier, an acquaintance of Pablo Picasso’s. Other objects will be on loan from private collectors.
