In This Month’s ‘Apollo Magazine’

Posted in journal articles by Editor on September 9, 2010

The eighteenth century in the September issue of Apollo Magazine:

Michael Pick, “Remarkable and Curious” — The quantity and superb quality of 18th-century French furniture in English collections is testament to the British passion for their neighbours’ designs, yet the presence of these works is little known in the UK or abroad.

Selma Schwartz, “Objects of Desire” — Sèvres’ lesser-known output of veilleuses, exquisite 18th-century nightlights or perfume burners, reflect in miniature the contemporary fashions and collectors’ interests of the time, including the depiction of drunken men in the style of Teniers the Younger.

Sylvain Levy-Alban, “A Taste for History” — The interior designer Jacques Garcia, currently refurbishing the 17th- and 18th-century period rooms at the Louvre, shares his obsessive passion for collecting with Apollo.
