The painted muselaar from my ‘Labour of Love’ post of
October 23, 2008 needed a table and stool. The client requested that we take inspiration for the design from the harpsichord stand pictured in this Flemish painting:
Plans were drawn up and the woodworker got to work
We then finished the stand with traditional gesso and pigment paints and gave it an antique ‘patina’
The table left the workshop for Switzerland on Saturday to join the muselaar. Addio!
