In 1747, Max III Joseph founded the electoral porcelain factory. The engagement of Franz Anton Bustelli as a porcelain modeller was a stroke of luck for the new manufactory. His lively, expressive figures once decorated the court dessert table. In the early 19th century, King Ludwig I took an interest in porcelain art and founded the ‘Royal Art Institute’ near the Art Academy in order to train porcelain painters academically. A further highpoint is the Jugendstil collection of porcelain with its innovative forms and decoration.
