Circle of SALAMBIER, Henri
Drawings, red chalk (sanguine), laid paper with French watermarks, various sizes and conditions.
A rich collection of floral ornaments for Rococo decorations, mostly palmettes and arabesques. The style and typology is very close to that of Henri Salambier (1753-1820), who was one of the crucial designers in the development of the Louis XVI-style. In 1780 he published his "Cahier d'Arabesques". These drawings are possibly associated with the creation of this publication.
