Panel, 53 x 99 cm - France, 1735-40
Ivory background, motifs in polychrome silks.
On the ivory background with contrasting elements, the so-called ‘islet’ motifs stand out in
polychrome technique defined by Revel, as they offer unusual perspective views whose
particularity is due to the rendering of the third dimension. Exemplary that the floral oriental taste
combines an ‘enchanted’ castle placed on a plate with cypresses.
