HERBERT, PIERRE-EUGÈNE-EMILE (FRENCH, 1828-1893)
Pierre-Eugène-Emile Hébert (1823-1893) was a renowned 19th Century French sculptor. A versatile artist, Herbert produced romantic bronzes and marbles, as well as furniture and decorative pieces in the Neoclassical and Egyptian Revival styles.
 
The son of sculptor Pierre Hébert, Emile studied under the guidance of his father and sculptor Jean-Jacques Feuchère. Hébert exhibited at many of important 19th Century exhibitions, including the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1855 and the Great Exhibitions in London of 1862 and 1867; at the latter the sculptor was awarded a gold medal for his work. Hébert was one of the few sculptors to work with the famous bronze fondeur Georges Servant, and their artistic collaboration resulted in exceptional pieces of the Neo-Grecian and Egyptian Revival style.
 
Today, Hébert’s works are housed in the collections of prestigious public institutions such as the National Gallery in Washington D.C. and the Musèe D'Orsay in Paris.  

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)

was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.

While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.

Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.

The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).

Satinwood

is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.

The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.

It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
