Literature: Sources for painted harbour scenes painted on Meissen porcelain, were derived from prints after paintings by Dutch masters of the seventeenth century, and were used extensively from the early 1720s until the 1750s. The Meissen factory actively sought folios of prints, as well as illustrated books and individual prints after the work of European artists; particularly popular were those painted by Jan van Goyen (1596-1656), Jan van de Velde (1593-1641), and Johann Wilhelm Baur (d.1640).
