Pink rococo chinoiserie

Happy Pink Saturday!

Today's post is a double joy for me I love rococo furniture and objects and I LOVE PINK so this is both combined.
It is by the well known rococo artist Jean-Baptiste Pillement and was created about 1775. The influence of the East on the courts of the Western world was amazing. Western people loved to see the scenes of Asia and what to them was so foreign and exotic and, of course, beautiful. If you love this chinoiserie style click on link below to see how modern and stylish chinoiserie can be today. 
Have a Pink day!
