Drawing, Bathroom and Boudoir Interior

This is a Drawing. It was created by Jean-Claude Rumeau. We acquired it in 2012. Its medium is pen and black ink, brush and watercolor, gouache, varnish, graphite on off-white paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

This interior shows the use of a gilded frieze with motifs of urns, anthemia, and other neo-classical ornament that looks much like the frieze of the surtout de table featured in the center of the gallery. The swans above the frieze, a favorite motif of Empress Josephine, are also seen on the surtout de table.
