35mm color slide of a hard-paste, two-handled soup bowl with cover and stand (Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory). This is an enlarged detail of the “Bowl with Cover and Stand” (écuelle, slide 50a). “These scenes with exotic gentlemen in Turkish dress recall the bustling harbor scenes fashionable on porcelain earlier in the eighteenth century. Philippe Castel placed his exotic figures in harbor scenes dominated by classical ruins, inspired by the interest in ancient Greece and Rome that captivated Europe during the last quarter of the eighteenth century” (SAM, no. 2005.178). The bowl and its stand have marks for Philippe Castel (active 1772–97), a painter of birds, ornaments, and landscapes, and for Henri-Martin Prévost (active 1757–97), a gilder (Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 153 no. 22, no. 63, 158n22, 161n63; Savill 1988, 3:1013). The number 50 is handwritten on the slide.
