004. The Lovers
Watercolor and gouache on gesso board

This vase is based on one of a pair of vases produced by the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory in 1769. The vase is called ‘Bachelier à anses tortillées’ after the designer, Jean-Jacques Bachelier. The pastoral scene is after Francois Boucher’s painting Les amants surpris. The vase is currently in the Wallace Collection, London.
