Postcard Poisson Tureen

  • Sale
  • Regular price $1.50

This fabulous soup tureen and platter (1990), replete with boisterous, flamboyant rococo-style ornament, was designed by the contemporary artist and photographer, Cindy Sherman, after a design originally commissioned by Madame de Pompadour (née Poisson), mistress to King Louis XV. Sherman’s photographic self-portrait fills the central cartouche, showing her in the guise of Pompadour in 18th-century costume with wig, white-powdered complexion, prosthetic breasts, and jewels.

The piece was featured in the Cooper Hewitt exhibits The Virtue in Vice and Rococo: The Continuing Curve.
