Venetian chair, around 1770.
dimensions : 100 H x 57 W x 45 D cm.
Original : collection of a antiquarian, Belgium
Arising from the aesthetic canons that penetrated Northern Europe (including England and the Netherlands), this chair from Northern Italy differs in the shape of its leg ends. The quite remarkable design of the back again adds to the elegance of the curves of the belt and of the feet. The rest of the seat is restrained in contrast to other models originating from this republic.
