Described in the archives of the Sèvres porcelain manufactory as a vase à panneaux (paneled vase), this lidded vase was named for its prominent reserve panels, which show pastoral and floral designs. The porcelain painter based the front scene on an engraving of a Dutch painting by Nicholaes Berchem.

Not only the painted scenes but also the gilding on this vase are typical of the grandest works produced at Sèvres. The gilding is of outstanding quality, thickly applied and then carefully tooled to create varied borders and patterns with subtle textures. Laurel leaf branches with berries and veined leaves and a wide band with zigzag lines frame the reserve panels. The gilded surfaces of the handles, the laurel swags, and the gadroons above the foot are burnished in imitation of gilt bronze.

Lidded vase (vàse a panneaux), about 1766 - 1770, Sèvres Manufactory. http://ow.ly/YXLfv #Art #Museum

El 2 de marzo de 1707 nace Louis-Michel van Loo, pintor francés autor de esta diosa Diana actitud de dulce abandono, muestra de pintura mitológica del siglo XVIII.

Van Loo se trasladó a Madrid para ser el pintor de corte de Felipe V, el primer rey Borbón de España, quien promovió un cambio de estilo en las artes españolas. Pintores parisinos como Van Loo trajeron el fastuoso barroco francés a la península.

‪#‎ArtOfTheWeek‬ ‘View from Theo’s apartment’ March - April 1887.
Vincent painted this view from Theo’s room in their shared apartment in Montmartre several times. In this apartment on Rue Lepic, Vincent finished many of his paintings. It’s still a place a lot of Van Gogh fans visit when in Paris, although it isn’t open to the public. Have you ever been to Rue Lepic?
