Kodner Galleries Presents French Palatial Louis XVI-Style Commode, Albert Lebourg PaintingJun 14, 2023 18:00 EDT
Following the discovery of Herculaneum and Pompeii, Louis XVI-style furniture was designed in a Neoclassical style, incorporating ancient vocabulary. There was a strong preference for straight lines and Greek or Roman motifs in ornamental and cabinetmaking work. Its popularity led to numerous variations in the production of Louis XVI-style works. Available in Kodner Galleries’ upcoming sale is a French Palatial Louis XVI-style commode. This circa 1900 piece, with an ormolu and mahogany Marie Antoinette medallion and Fleur de Pêche marble top, is inspired by Beneman & Stökel and has Clodion gilt-bronze panels.
Additional lots of interest include an oil on canvas painting by the French artist Albert Lebourg. An Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painter, Lebourg was best known for his landscape paintings of riverbanks, sunsets, and snowscapes that balanced light variations. Attempting to depict the subtleties of light and influences of the atmosphere in his work, the artist began painting studies of one site in several different lights. Most of his paintings were created using oil on canvas depicting riverside scenery and riverbanks observed during his visits to the Île-de-France region of Paris, Normandy, and Rouen. Lebourg’s works often feature the Seine, which he renders in his distinctive style with multiple colors and brushstrokes.
