Theodor Grust (1859-1919) was a German genre and porcelain painter from the Saxon town Meissen. Grust studied at the Academy in Dresden as a pupil of Theodor Grosse. Later he went to Munich. The artist travelled to Belgium and to the Netherlands before he settled down in his hometown Meissen. Grust worked there in the famous porcelain manufacture, where he created abstract and linear designs in the style of Henry van de Velde and pushed forward the development of Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) in the factory. As a genre painter the artist focused on bourgeois interiors. He was inspired by the great Flemish masters of this genre. More on Theodor Grust

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
