A Painter's Studio

Unknown1820s

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

This finely painted interior features a drawing school or copying studio. The large center table in the Empire style, grand crystal and gilt-bronze chandelier, and bust, at left, of Charles X, probably modeled on a painting by Jacques-Louis David, are all indicative of Neoclassical design in France.
