Description

Displaying influences of Spanish Baroque artwork and genre painting, this fine porcelain plaque was made in France in the late nineteenth century, and executed by a relatively unknown yet skilled painter, Eugêne-Auguste Landry.

Depicting a genre scene of a musical party gathering, the plaque shows a group of figures crowded around a table, with a band of musicians and singers performing, while a band of bacchic revellers enjoy the festivities and lay down their cutlasses and other objects.

The instruments, characterisation and appearance of the figures clearly seem Spanish, influenced by Baroque art after Velasqueze and later genre painters, which lends this French decorative work an artistic allure and point of interest that separates it from other equally fine porcelain pieces.
