Designs for an Art Nouevau Wall Cabinet with Wood Inlay

Not on view

Design for an Art Nouveau cabinet with a single large door and a drawer below. The cabient is made of wood and appears to be decorated with floral wood inlay. This design is part of a group of drawings representing a range of furniture designs in the French Art Nouveau style, attributed to Edward Colonna and Georges de Feure. The designs are all executed in graphite and finished with watercolor. The high degree of finish of these drawings suggest that they were used for presentation to clients, or possibly served as models for lithographic illustrations. The Museum has several furniture pieces by both artists that closely relate to the present group of drawings. The design for a small side table by Colonna, in particular, show great similarities.
