The exceptional quality and welcoming abundance of watercolours and gouaches presented in this catalogue invites the reader to delve into the intimacy of the most refined interiors.
From Italian galleries to refuges in Bavaria, halls in Brighton and bedrooms overlooking the Neva river, the aim was to welcome guests into apartments that strove to outdo each other with the work of the most fashionable architects and interior decorators, and to proudly commission spectacular works suggestive of the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie.
