The satirical series of the Liberal Arts or Die freyen Knste which this group is from was modelled by Meyer in circa 1770. Cf. Erich Köllmann and Margarete Jarchow, Berliner Porzellan (Mnich 1987), Vol. II, pp. 360-61 for an illustrated example of the group in the Museum Schloss Fasanerie near Fulda and for illustrated examples of the other groups in the series.
