Footnotes

  • Best known for her work with natural marine materials such as coral and shell, Janine Janet's work was not exclusively sculpture; Janet also worked closely alongside the film and fashion industry. In the 1940s and 50s, Janet regularly designed the window displays for such high profile French couturiers as Dior and Givenchy. Her best known collaboration with cinema was producing costumes and set design for Le Testament d' Orphée, directed by Jean Cocteau.

    The wall lights in the above lot were originally made for Lord Glenconner's house in Tite Street, Chelsea.
