Catalogue Note

This exquisite carving work is comparable to the works of Nicolas Pineau and his son Dominique, whose oeuvres include the decorations for the Grand Salon of the Castle of Asnières, vacation residence of the Marquis de Voyer (1722-1782), son of Count d'Argenson, executed in circa 1750 under the direction of Jacques Hardouin-Mansart, called Mansart de Sagonne. The decoration was dismantled at the end of the 19th century and some elements were acquired by Lord Astor for Cliveden House, Buckinghamshire.
Other elements of similar woodwork were exhibited by the Gismondi Gallery, at the Paris Biennale, in the early 2000s.
