*Rococo Revisited
Landscape with Architecture, ca. 1730
Isaac de Moucheron (Netherlandish, 1667–1744)
This drawing by Isaac de Moucheron, dated ca. 1730, illustrates an imaginary Italianate garden filled with classical architecture and statuary. Beautiful in its own right and much sought after by collectors, the main idea and composition of this drawing may have been used for a larger wall design, carrying the nostalgic atmosphere of a lost arcadia into the Northern European mansion.
