Refined and elegant, this attractive watercolour, so typical of Percier’s style, is a design for a jardinière commissioned by an unidentified patron in Paris, known only as Monsieur E (see Literature).  The design can be dated to between 1801 and 1805.

Charles Percier was awarded the Prix de Rome for architecture in 1786 and spent seven years at the Académie de France in Rome.  During his time in Italy he worked closely alongside another fellow student of architecture, Pierre Fontaine (1762-1853).  Their friendship and working relationship continued upon their return to Paris, where they collaborated on numerous architectural projects until 1814.
