Mirror Case with Pairs of Lovers


Description Provenance Credit
Description This relatively small mirror case is divided into four compartments by four highly stylized trees growing from the center. The scenes show pairs of lovers of different ages and social conditions embracing, admonishing, and caressing each other. The four monster corner terminals are restorations, and the back has been scored as if for some other use. The subject of pairs of lovers divided by four trees appears in other French mirror cases.
Provenance Henri Daguerre, Paris [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore [date of acquisition unknown], by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters
