"The king is dead, long live the king !".
Louis XV's grandson came to power in the midst of the discovery of Pompeii and Herculaneum, revealing a diverse antiquity, at the origin of the emerging style.
Inspired by the furniture of Riesener and Jacob, the bronze craftsmen develop lighting fixtures with a preponderance of ordered straight lines and symmetries on the one hand, and the pastoral and floral style instilled by Marie-Antoinette on the other.
