Extravagant Inventions: The Princely Furniture of the Roentgens, October 30, 2012–January 27, 2013

“The meteoric rise of the workshop of Abraham Roentgen (1711–1793) and his son David (1743–1807) blazed across eighteenth-century continental Europe. This landmark exhibition will be the first comprehensive survey of the cabinetmaking firm from around 1742 to its closing in the early 1800s. Its innovative designs were combined with intriguing mechanical devices to revolutionize traditional French and English furniture types.”

Coming up soon at a Met near you.
