Heaven in a nutshell. Art and devotion in the age of Burgundy

The distribution of religious books and the popularity of devotion to the rosary during the 15th century contributed to an increase in piety in the Burgundian Netherlands, prompting a demand for items for personal prayer and meditation notable for their use of precious materials and tiny size. The exhibition focusses on the beauty of these objects, their function and uses.

The Riesener season

Jean-Henri Riesener (1734-1806) was the most important cabinetmaker in France during Louis XVI’s reign. From humble beginnings as a German emigrant, he found work in Paris and went on to become the most successful cabinetmaker of his generation. His work was renowned for its floral and figurative marquetry and spectacular gilt-bronze mounts and he was appointed cabinetmaker to Louis XVI in 1774. He was Marie-Antoinette’s favourite cabinetmaker, providing furniture for her private apartments in several royal palaces. In the nineteenth century, his name became synonymous with craftsmanship and luxury, and all that was admired in French furniture.

The Riesener Season at the Wallace Collection will encompass a display of Riesener’s furniture with an accompanying digital trail, a fascinating new book about the cabinetmaker, a dedicated microsite exploring the life and work of the artist, and a series of free online public events. This season is the culmination of a five-year research project led by the Wallace Collection in partnership with Royal Collection Trust and Waddesdon Manor, two other highly important collections of Riesener furniture that were put together by George IV and Ferdinand and Alice de Rothschild respectively.
