Provenance :
- Mr. H.’s collection (1931-2012 - well-known family of brewers since 1965, East of France) ; composed originally by two floor lamps by Marc Nicolas Du Plantier, illustrated p.292 in the artist’s monograph. In Mr. H’s estate a lot of invoices issued by galerie de la Présidence or by Artcurial has been found. In addtion, this collector’s interior had 18th Century pieces, so, these floorlamps found easily their place in this decor.
