CORCSD_131025_25.JPG: The Salon Dore:
The Salon Dore, a superb example of the early neoclassical style in French interior design, was originally part of a grant Parisian home, the hotel de Clermont. The room was commissioned by Pierre-Gaspard-Marie Grimod, Count d'Orsay (1748-1809) as a drawing room for the girl he would marry at the end of 1770, Marie-Louise-Albertine-Amelia, Princess de Croy-Molenbais. The Count d'Orsay was extremely proud of this marriage and wanted a room that would indeed be fit for a princess. The architect of the project was Jean-Francois-Therese Chalgrin (1734-1811). Hugues Taraval (1729-1785) painted the ceiling mural. The Salon Dore was on the ground floor of the house and the large doors opened onto a deep and beautifully landscaped garden.
Towards the end of the nineteenth century the salon was dismantled and eventually sold to Senator William A. Clark (1839-1925), who installed it with some modifications in the house he built on Fifth Avenue at 77th Street in New York City. The salon came to the Corcoran in 1926 as part of the Clark bequest, which included European paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts. When the room was moved to the Corcoran, no additional changes had to be made because the architect of the Clark Wing created an exact space for it.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
