Everyday Rococo: Madame de Pompadour and Sèvres Porcelain
JEANNE ANTOINETTE POISSON (1721-64), Madame de Pompadour, became the official mistress of Louis XV of France in 1745, and for the rest of her life their patronage of Vincennes/Sevres helped to make it one of the greatest porcelain factories in history.
Everyday Rococo: Madame de Pompadour and Sevres Porcelain is a year-on-year richly-illustrated chronology in two volumes of her daily life and purchases. Although also partly a social history revealing Madame de Pompadour as a major player in the art and politics of eighteenth-century France, Rosalind Savill's diligent research has concentrated on the everyday details of Madame de Pompadour's life for which Vincennes/Sevres catered so perfectly.
