Directoire - Maison Lucien GAU
A breath of freedom follows the heavy years of the Revolution.
The "Incroyables" and the "Merveilleuses" let off steam by strutting under the arcades of the Royal Palace.
The directoire or messidor style, in which persists, with more lightness, the inspiration of Louis XVI leaves little trace in decorative art in view of the brevity of its period (4 years).
It nevertheless confirms the return to ancient purity, preparing us for the Empire style.
