Porcelain was the white gold of the eighteenth century coveted by enlightened princes. Two of them, Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, and Louis-Henri de Bourbon, Prince of Condé, Prime Minister of King Louis XV, put their fortunes at the service of their passion and founded two renowned manufactories in Meissen and Chantilly. For the first time, a major exhibition and its catalog shed light on the dialogue between these manufactures that shaped the decorative arts of the Age of Enlightenment.
