Collection in Depth


We have one of the most important holdings of Riesener furniture in the world. New research on the maker and his furniture is introduced through a new learning site, which provides detailed information about Riesener’s life, his work for the royal French court and his patrons.

Richly illustrated with new high-resolution photography and digital content, the site reveals insights into Riesener’s furniture here at the Wallace Collection, as well as his working methods, the materials he used and the cabinetmaking techniques he employed.
