*Rococo Revisited
The “Vieux-Laque” (ancient lacquer) Room in Schönbrunn was used by Emperor Franz Stephan as his study. Following his sudden death in 1765, Maria Theresa had it remodelled as a memorial room.
Black lacquer panels from Peking were set into walnut panelling and embellished with gilt frames. The empress also commissioned several portraits for this room which still hang here. The posthumous portrait of her husband by Pompeo Batoni was completed in 1769, four years after the death of the emperor. photo ©Alexander Eugen Koller
