*Rococo Revisited
Gate of a hunting-ground, a project by Jean-Jacques Lequeu
Lequeu (1757 – 1826) was a French draughtsman and architect. Lequeu produced some of the most imaginative landscape and architectural designs, some a masterful combination of the Gothic, the Egyptian, the Greek, the Chinese, and a smattering of hallucinations. However, except for two folies in Rouen, none were ever constructed. He was somewhat of a pornographer as well and at least in his self-portraits, a cross-dresser.
