Meet the Expert: Letting Nature In image

Speaker: Félix Zorzo, Curatorial Assistant (temporary cover for the Curator of 18th-Century French Decorative Arts)
Description: In the first decades of the 18th century, French designers, sculptors and craftsmen sought inspiration from nature for their innovative creations in the Régence and Rococo styles. Decorative motifs, derived from animals and plants, populated fashionable interiors and stimulated conversation.
Curatorial Assistant Félix Zorzo explores how decorative art pieces at the Wallace Collection reflect this interest in the natural world.
