A Roman Transitional giltwood armchair, circa 1770

來源

Sotheby's London, June 11, 2003, lot 77

相關資料

This masterfully carved armchair is typical of the transitional period in Roman decorative arts, when the rococo, seen here in the lightly sinuous legs and armrests, was gradually superseded by the nascent neoclassical movement, manifest in the guilloche carving along the moulded edges and profile medallions in the seat and crest rails.
The present lot forms part of a larger set of chairs of the same design but with variations to the medallions.  One example was formerly in the Alberto Bruni Tedeschi Collection, sold Sotheby's London, March 21, 2007, lot 131.  Another pair was exhibited by Christophe de Quénetain at the Paris Biennale des Antiquaires in September 2010, where the design was attributed to the architect Antonio Asprucci and the execution to Antonio Landucci, who worked for leading members of the Papal Court including Prince Marcantonio Borghese.
