Gilded Interiors: Parisian Luxury and the Antique

Regular price £18.00 £10.00 Sale

The Wallace Collection has an internationally-renowned collection of French Eighteenth-Century art but perhaps lesser known today is their stunning collection of gilt-bronze objects. These bronzes d'ameublement - from Clocks and mounted Sevres Porcelain to Wall Lights and Candelabra - epitomised the levels of luxury achieved in Parisian interiors. Highly expensive and expertly wrought, they illustrate the heights of skilled craftsmanship achieved by French bronze workers in the 18th century as well as showcasing the wealth and connoisseur ship of their owners.

Lavishly illustrated with new photography, this publication written by Senior Curator Helen Jacobsen, will be a book of 'highlights' to include the very best of what the Wallace Collection has to offer in this field.
