Vase and Cover (Vase cassolette Bachelier)


Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The “front” reserve of this white vase was decorated by Charles-Nicolas Dodin (1734–1803), after François Boucher’s painting Interrupted Sleep, which was also known through an engraving. This painting of a shepherd teasing a sleeping shepherdess was made for the château de Bellevue for Madame de Pompadour, royal mistress to King Louis XV. The vase and cover are termed a "Vase cassolette Bachelier" after the designer of this shape, Jean-Jacques Bachelier (1724–1806).
