Small porcelain figures such as those made by Franz Anton Bustelli (1723-63) at Nymphenburg (see Nymphenburg ware) are perhaps the quintessence of the rococo, fusing all its qualities into a single miniature art Karl Marx and the Future of the Human (The Raya Dunayevskaya Series in Marxism and Humanism).
