Wig Box In “arte-povera”
“XVIII Wig Box In “arte-povera””
Dimensions: 14 X 28 X 21 cm approximately.
The years are the cause …
This superb wig box from the Louis XV period is in a sad state: very many lacks and gaps, background largely repainted, ball feet probably not original, etc …
Having said that, it emanates an old-fashioned charm, a memory of frivolity and lightness with its cover decorated “in Chinese”, its sides where the characters make music, dance or play a kind of billiards-croquet while elsewhere birds and insects punctuate the decoration of lambrequins and garlands…
The arte-povera technique which we could translate “art-poor” in French, consisted in replacing the painted decorations by colored and varnished engravings pasted on the colored background .
The object is very “family castle”, inhabited for centuries !
