A leading furniture lot in the upcoming sale offered by Doyle is a mahogany secretaire-cabinet attributed to Thomas Chippendale. It shows the influence of Chippendale’s friend and colleague Robert Adam, who favored a more Neoclassical style to Chippendale’s English Rococo. Another lot of interest, two pier tables made of satinwood, tulipwood, and marquetry, follow Chippendale’s style. Each half-circle table is carved with sunflowers, palmettes, and a profile portrait on the front.
This English & Continental Furniture / Old Master Paintings auction will also highlight the work of Marie-Victoire Lemoine. An unmarried female artist who was sporadically active around the turn of the 19th century, Lemoine is best known for her portraits of high-ranking members of the French court. The available Lemoine portrait depicts Pauline Bonaparte, the younger sister of Napoleon I. Likely created a year into Bonaparte’s marriage to a French general, the subject leans against an open window with a book in her hands. Pieces of Renaissance fine art, as well as Persian carpets and rugs, will also be offered. Browse the full selection and register to bid by visiting Invaluable.
