H: 90 - W: 69 - W: 67 cm Possibility of obtaining a certificate from the purchaser Louis Delanois leaves behind a large number of seats, both Louis XV and Louis XVI, all of which testify to his talent. After his debut in a workshop in the Rue Bourbon-Villeneuve, success quickly came to light and he decided to settle in the Rue des Petits-Carreaux, where, in addition to his main activity, he was involved in the wood trade. Delanois worked for merchants, for illustrious personalities such as the Comte d'Artois, the Prince de Condé or the Duke of Chartres, for rich collectors, but especially for the Countess du Barry, who passed him many orders. Louis Delanois's reputation extends to foreign countries where he is offered promising opportunities. Almost all of his orders are meticulously recorded in his Book of Works and Furniture Supplies made on credit. This document testifies to the scope of Delanois's activities, but also to the constant search for new shapes and patterns. Delanois's work thus played a major role in the evolution of the styles of the period and, more precisely, in the early formation of the Louis XVI style during the reign of Louis XV. The Louis XV models, the most numerous, whether they be of classic manufacture or of control, reveal the skill and the taste of the manufacturer and his collaborators. Beautiful proportions, a structure both robust and supple, elegantly undulating lines, is characterized a whole series of armchairs to the queen and shepherdesses executed by Delanois. He also invented the medallion back. The decor remains sober; It is sometimes limited to moldings in particular on the seats in convertible and caned seats. The sculpture of flowers and foliage remains limited. A Louis XV high-quality chair, there is also a large, molded chair, decorated with staples in the back, but also numerous sofas, beds and beds with lacrosse or chairs, all of great elegance and d 'A rare quality of sculpture. If he decides to continue long enough the manufacture of Louis XV seats, Delanois also presents himself as one of the innovators of the Louis XVI style. Less numerous than the Louis XV models, Louis XVI's Delanois seats are, conversely, more ornate. In 1777, despite his success, great financial difficulties forced him to sell his studio to his colleague Martin Jullien. They eventually forced him into bankruptcy in 1790. After his death, a sale was organized, announced by Les Petites Affiches on August 6, 1792.
