Jean PILLEMENT (1728-1808) was a famous artist, who was invited and appreciated by many European courts, such as Poland, England and Portugal. In France he was granted the title of the ‘Peintre de Marie-Antoinette’ (the queen Marie-Antoinette’s appointed painter). His famous Chinese style wooden panels were engraved by many. He published a book of ‘imaginary flowers’ that inspired many artists of that time.
In 1767 he published a collection of around 200 original drawings and designs, of which 80 were chosen for this toile printed some 20 years after the publishing of the collection. The mythological dodo bird from Mauritius, heavy and incapable of flying, for instance can be spotted amongst other amusing designs.
Jouy manufacture, around 1787.
