A LARGE CHINOISERIE PANEL, LATE 19th/EARLY 20th CENTURY
Gouache on fabric panel,
The charming Chinoiserie motifs in this large panel refer back to the 18th Century sources such as the etchings after decorative designs by Jean-Baptiste Pillement (1728-1808) that spread Rococo style and especially the 'Chinese Taste' across continental Europe (see Maria Gordon-Smith, Pillement, IRSA, Kracow, 2006).  It was acquired by the present owner many years ago from the contents sale of a grand Victorian house at 174 Power Street, Hawthorn.  The only visual reference we have been able to find which reflects its format and scale is a design by a German Company in 1919 for a Chinoiserie-style dining room (Dawn Jacobson, Chinoiserie, Phaidon, London, 1993, illus. p. 210). We are most grateful for this reference to Clare Browne, Curator of Textiles at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
