*Rococo Revisited
Commode 
Matthieu CRIAERD (Brussels?, 1689 - Paris, 1776)
C. 1745-50
Louvre Museum | Paris
Polychrome lacquer; gilded bronze; marble
polychrome decoration on lacquered wood with hunting scenes, and, on the right side, a landscape, all in an Orientalizing spirit. For his commodes, Criaerd used lacquer panels from the Far East, as well as European lacquers. Commodes made up the greater part of Matthieu Criaerd’s production and were all in the Louis XV style, the essential 18th century rococo style.
