Jean-Pierre Latz, recorded cabinetmaker between 1719 and 1754
Louis-François Herbault, clockmaker received master in 1743

Clocks and brackets comprised the majority of Jean-Pierre Latz's cabinetmaker's production. During his postmortem inventory in 1754, there were no less than 170 clock cases versus only 48 pieces of furniture. Until 1749, he conceived and used his own bronzes with very trimmed lines, typical of his Rococo style. The bracket's parquetry decoration, with exceptional dimensions, is comparable with the planisphere attributed to Latz and kept at J. Paul Getty Museum, inv. 74.DB.2 (see G. Wilson et al., European Clocks in the J. Paul Getty Museum, Malibu 1996, cat XIII).

Cardinal Dominique de La Rochefoucauld-Langeac (1712-1800) was bishop of Rouen from 1759 until his exile in August 1792. He resided at the archi-episcopal palace, which he helped to renovate and for which he notably employed the painter Hubert Robert.
