ca. 1725-30

Stadler, who worked at Meissen after 1723, painted a number of works based on a series of engravings, "Neiuwe geinventeerde Sineesen" (Newly Invented Chinoiseries), published by the Amsterdam printmaker Petrus Schenk the Younger between 1700 and 1705. They feature large chinoiserie fig-ures among stylized rocks and over-powering flowering plants. Painted decoration attributed to Stadler often incorporates an elaborate use of metallic luster, called mother-of-pearl (Perlmutter), a costly material containing gold.
