Catalogue Note

This type of trompe l'oeil - of antique relief painted en grisaille - was very popular in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries.  One of the most successful proponents of this type of painting was the artist Piat Joseph Sauvage, whose style this work and the following lots clearly emulate.
