Footnotes

  • Giuseppe Maggiolini (1738-1814), began working as a carpenter for a monastery before establishing his own workshop in Milan in 1758. In addition to serving the court of Milan, Maggiolini created pieces for other European royalty including the King of Poland, Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, the Duchess of Austria, and Napoleon's widow, Empress Maria Luisa.

    So renowned was Maggiolini's marquetry furniture during his own lifetime that his work was widely copied. He created masterpieces of illusion with his compositions of stained and natural coloured exotic woods, bouquets, classical architecture, musical instruments, and swags of ribbons and fruit.
