Literature:
Köllmann, Erich: Berliner Porzellan 1763-1963, Braunschweig 1966. For the centrepiece see Vol. I, p. 153f. For the model here see vol. II, plate 290b.

This sculpture belongs to the large centrepiece "Birth of Beauty" which was created by Paul Scheurich at the end of his life for the Berlin Porcelain Manufactory. The then Reich Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop had commissioned it from the manufactory in 1940. "Scheurich chose the theme "The Birth of Beauty", whose centrepiece was to be the group of Venus Anadyomene. Only a part of this work, consisting of nereids, tritons, putti riding on dolphins and other sea creatures, was executed. Scheurich's style has changed in this last work. His figures no longer have the carefree grace of rococo, but rather show the super-slender, tense attitude of mannerism, marked by strong contrapost." (from: Köllmann (1966) p.154).
