Pierre Rousseau

Oil on wood

Gift of Grace Rainey Rogers in memory of her father, William J. Rainey 1942.2.13

Description

Shifts in style and taste often result in changes to original architectural details. Rousseau painted
these doors with imitation dark wood grain. Another craftsman later scraped off the dark color surrounding the classical designs. This set was conserved in 1979 and retains more traces of the original graining than the other doors by this artist in the museum's collection.
