Mrs. Francis Henry Lenygon (until 1975)
The only other cartoon for the back of a settee known to James Parker is in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; it is, according to him, of lesser quality. For similar designs, see A. de Champeaux, Portefeuille des arts décoratifs 9 (1896–97), pls. 797 (models for the seat and back of a sofa painted by Louis Teissier for the Manufacture des Gobelins, in the Musée de la Manufacture des Gobelins, Paris) and 839 (models for valances by Ranson, in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs).
