Description This paper considers forms of cultural transfer in decorative design in Central Europe in the second half of the 18th century, focussing on works that combine aspects of both fine arts and artisan craftsmanship. Based on a detailed analysis of a number of works, the authors show that trends in decoration that had hitherto been broadly interpreted as a somewhat uninventive adoption of French graphic pattern-books in fact represented an innovative quest for an original Central European synthesis taking its inspiration from classical Roman art and developing ideas emerging from the recently introduced teaching of artistic design at the Vienna Academy and from circles close to the imperial court.
