Description

35mm color slide of a tray (Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory). Against a white ground color are paintings of intertwined foliage at the center and along the gilded, scalloped edges. The tray has the painter’s mark for Louis-Jean Thévenet, also known as Thévenet père (the elder; b. 1707–d. after 1778; active 1741–1777), who was one of the “most skilled flower-painters” of his era (Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 96; dates from Savill 1988, 3:1071). The number 26 is handwritten on the slide.

Find more details on Thévenet and painters’ marks in the Fritzsche Porcelain Exhibit.
