Abstract :
A relationship between the Dresden Academy of Art and the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory was formally established as part of Saxon State policy to improve the quality and competitive edge of the region's manufactures following the Seven Years War. Conflicts emerged when the Academy's concern to uphold 'good taste' ran counter to Meissen's commercial interests, especially at a time when the latter encountered severe setbacks in a turbulent period between two major stages in Saxon State reform. The curriculum at the Meissen School is given particular attention in this paper with regard to the Academy's aim to 'introduce good taste.' The conflicts arising from the different objectives of commercial success on the one hand and the protection of academic standards on the other is revealed through the experiences of some of the artists who were employed at Meissen. ;
