Catalogue Note

Léonard Boudin  (1735-1807) enjoyed a long career which started when he was apprenticed to the marchand-ébéniste Pierre Migeon.  By the time he received his maîtrise in 1761, his reputation was such that he received commissions from other ébénistes, one of the hallmarks of his work was the production of marquetry panels of great quality.  In 1762 Boudin opened his own shop and in turn he commissioned works from other ébénistes, but he did not give up his own production which continued to reflect his high standards of craftsmanship.
