Asia looks like paradise. Why anyone would ever want to leave it..

I've never seen a Jeff Wall show and just saw his new show because I was right there yesterday even though he was on your syllabus but it's amazing, and I can see the influence as with "Approach" and others. Color prints. They have a checklist for titles

European porcelain was 'invented' just E of Leipzig, between it and Dresden. The Dutch had brought it from China a century earlier and it got to be a very expensive import consumer item, dating the fascination for East Asia in Saxony to at least that time. I have read varying accounts but again it was Augustus the Strong the art collector at the center of things..

Wikipedia: "Around 1700, as an apprentice chemist with the pharmacist Zorn in Berlin, Böttger locked himself up to discover in private the Alltinktur or Goldmachertinktur, an alchemist's secret substance with which supposedly any disease could be cured and base metals converted into gold. His activities did not stay secret for long and soon he was regarded as an adept in alchemy. When King Frederick I of Prussia learned of this, he requested that Böttger be taken into "protective custody". Böttger escaped, but was detained and taken back to Dresden. The monarch of Saxony Augustus II of Poland, who was always short of money, demanded that Böttger produce the so-called Goldmachertinktur in order to convert base metals into gold. In 1704, von Tschirnhaus was ordered to oversee the goldmaker. Presumably by involving Böttger in his experiments, he spared him the fate that overtook former alchemist adventurers. Böttger, however, was not interested, and refused any cooperation until September 1707. He did not want to be involved with porcelain, which he thought was von Tschirnhaus' business. Only when ordered by the king did Böttger start to cooperate.

..."In a later report from 1731, Peter Mohrenthal wrote: "All of Saxony will remember von Tschirnhaus and his fame will persist forever, as long as the porcelain factory in Meissen is unique besides the Chinese one..."
