Catalogue Note

Influenced by his master Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni, Pierre-Antoine Demachy specialized in painting architectural fantasies such as these, which were intended to decorate the private rooms of a collector's home. A number of small scale capricci scenes were offered in French sales between 1770s-1790s, paying tribute to their popularity during the late 18th century.
