The Directoire style, of antique and classical inspiration, is characterized by a sober workmanship and simple shapes. After the fall of Louis XVI, the Directoire style marks a desire to break with the opulent royal codes, which will be taken up and enhanced with the Empire. This short post-revolutionary period is characterized by the abandonment of bronze (in the service of Bonaparte's guns), replaced by painted sheet metal, and the search for a new light source (oil and the Argand and Quinquet systems ) replacing the candles, then a symbol of monarchical power.
