This picture was exhibited in London c.1999. It was painted by theatre designer Thierry Bosquet who is has designed costume and sets for over 200 opera and theatre productions mainly at the Royal Theatre of La Monnaie, where he was the principal decorator for twenty years, He has dedicated his life to the study of opulence and his home is a shrine to ornamental overload. The level of technique in this picture is staggering and is a fantastic decorator's piece.
