Lot Essay

Designed in the Louis XV 'gôut-grec' style of circa 1765-70, these wall lights relate to the group traditionally associated with Jean-Louis Prieur (maître in 1752). This attribution is based upon their stylistic affinity with an album of designs for wall-lights, formerly attributed to Richard Lalonde but now thought to be by Prieur, which is variously divided between the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris and the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
