Catalogue Note

Pierre-Gaston Brion (1747-1841) was commissioned by Napoléon I, Charles X and Louis-Philippe to supply numerous pieces to Fontainebleau, Versailles, Pau and the Tuileries. This pair of fauteuils are similar to a suite of furniture ordered by Napoléon I in 1812 which was not used and was stored in the Garde-Meuble until 1838. It was subsequently moved to the salon de la famille of the Grand Trianon and currently remains at Versailles.
