Lot Essay

Jean-Baptiste Reveillon (d. 1811) was appointed in 1784 as Manufacture Royale to Louis XVI. The wallpaper patterns are conceived in the antique manner, inspired by Giovanni Volpato's decoration of the Raphael Loggia in the Vatican, Rome.

The papers may have been acquired during the visits made to Paris in the early 1780s by George Onslow, 4th Baron and later 1st Earl of Onslow (d. 1814), a Lord-in-Waiting to George III. They are contemporary with some of Reveillon's 'Les Deux Pigeons' paper, which the Earl acquired at this period for the drawing room at Clandon Park, Surrey (J. Cornforth et al, Clandon Park, 1995, p. 16).
