AUGEN—BLICKE. Baroque Ivories in Dialogue with Other Works of Art (Part 2)

In the Sponsel Room at the Neues Grünes Gewölbe, in Dresden's Residenzschloss (Royal Palace), an exclusive, intimate exhibition awaits visitors. Almost exactly one year after the first part of the exhibition, entitled "AN-SICHTEN" (points of view), the focus is again on ivories from the Grünes Gewölbe, and on encouraging a "dialogue" between the different types and genres.

[Translate to English:] Elfenbeinkunst

Baroque festivities, the power of love, the magic of commedia dell'arte, and even the Dresden court fools Hante and Fröhlich are brought to life in statuettes and reliefs made of ivory, terracotta and Meissen porcelain, or in the drawings and prints inspiring them. Likenesses and portraits in the form of paintings, copperplate etchings, images on medals, busts or reliefs made of ivory, terracotta or Böttger stoneware give the exhibition its elegant charm.

Jacques Callot, from the series "Les Bohémiens", probably 1621 or 1621-1625, etching, Inv. No. A 5902

[Translate to English:] Bild

Cleverly, artistically captured "AUGEN-BLICKE" (moments) await the viewer's keen gaze. Though most of the ivories are from the first half of the eighteenth century, the earliest dates to 1691/92 and the most recent to c. 1764. Items are coming on loan from various museums of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Schloss Moritzburg and museums in Hamburg, Schwerin, Berlin, Braunschweig, Stuttgart, Hannover, Kassel and Nuremberg.
