Louis XIV wall lamp with two lights

The Louis XIV style, between 1643 and 1715, includes three distinct periods: the first, still all imprint of Louis XIII until 1661, the second until 1685, the height of the Louis XIV style, finally the last one is no longer just utilitarian, it becomes an element of the decor. The works of André-Charles Boulle deeply mark this last period and his work is now the greatest symbol of this stylistic period. Freed, thanks to his royal privilege from the obligation to work only with wood as a cabinetmaker, Boulle became the greatest artist of his generation. In addition to his marquetry work for which he is best known, the new importance given to gilded and chiseled bronze in his creations helped to diversify a manufacture of bronze until then confined to sculpture and which would become the most powerful industry in the world of decorative arts in the 19th century. On these “baroque” or “classic French” chandeliers, we find sculpted faces, volutes, floral motifs and acanthus leaves, on a symmetrical structure.
Applique Louis XIV à deux lumières

Le style Louis XIV, entre 1643 et 1715, comprend trois périodes distinctes; la première, encore tout empreinte de Louis XIII jusqu'en 1661, la seconde jusqu 'en 1685, apogée du style Louis XIV, enfin la dernière. Le mobilier n'est plus seulement utilitaire, il devient un élément de décor. Les oeuvres d’André-Charles Boulle marquent profondément cette dernière période et son travail est maintenant le plus grand symbole de cette période stylistique. Libéré, grâce à son privilège royal de l’obligation de travailler uniquement le bois en tant qu’ébeniste, Boulle devient le plus grand artiste de sa génération. Outre son travail de marqueterie pour lequel il est le plus connu, l'importance nouvelle donnée au bronze doré et ciselé dans ses créations contribue à diversifier une fabrication du bronze jusqu'alors cantonnée à la sculpture et qui deviendra l'industrie la plus puissante des arts décoratifs au xixe siècle. On retrouve sur les lustres de style baroque, ou classique francais, les visages sculptés, des volutes, motifs floraux et feuilles d’acanthe, sur une structure symétrique.
