A Fine KPM Porcelain Plaque depicting a scene from Shakespare’s Play Othello, After the Painting by Carl Ludwig Friedrich Becker (German, 1820-1900).

The plaque is very finely painted depicting Othello, the Moor of Venice, realting his adventures before Senator Brabantio and his daughter Desdamona. The figures set within a finely painted reniassance loggia.

Karl Ludwig Friedrich Becker (1820-1900) was a German historical painter, born in Berlin. He was a pupil of von Klöber, Cornelius, and Hess. He later studied in Paris, Rome, and Venice, and first attained success with subjects of the Venetian Renaissance.

Historical and genre scenes by old masters and contemporary historical artists provided the main source of inspiration for KPM plaques in the late nineteenth century.
