Description:
An architectural design print depicting an interior wall elevation for a room in the Châteaux de Brunoy, with a view over the garden, designed by Jean Mansart de Jouy for Jean Pâris de Monmartel, marquis de Brunoy. The wall features two glass paneled double doors with paneled (boiseries) shutters. Wrought-iron balcony balustrades are visible through the doors. In the center, a mirror topped with an over mirror painting, and below a console table supporting an ornamental handled vase or ewer featuring a dragon handle. The paneling (boiserie) is decorated with rococo motifs – feathers, c-scrolls, s-scrolls, fleurons, and scrolling leaves (rinceaux). The plate is titled, numbered, and signed with a scale below the design.
