More from the wonderful “Catalogue des tableaux de Mr. de Jullienne,” an album compiled by Jean-Baptiste-François de Montullé around 1756 which has watercolor illustrations showing where various pieces were hung in the collector’s house. Mr. De Jullienne having been a collector in 18th century Paris. If only we could all time travel back and stop in to take a look around. Collections of the Morgan Library and Museum, New York.
