"Pierre IV Migeon seems to have had a sort of predilection for sloping secretaries, in which his taste for movement could fully blossom (...) Without attributing the paternity to Pierre IV Migeon, we can affirm that he was one of the first to adopt it (before 1730), and that he contributed to improve it, always evolving towards more simplicity and elegance. Most of the secretaries made by Migeon were made of walnut or veneered with amaranth, and then, in the later years, with rosewood or violet wood."

"Migeon is above all a cabinetmaker of veneer (...) He multiplies the play of veneer by playing on monochrome decorative effects and on the intrinsic beauty of the material". (p. 69)

Pierre IV Migeon (1696-1758)
His date of mastery remains hypothetical because the registers kept in the national archives have disappeared for the first third of the 18th century, it is likely that he acquired it around 1721. He was both a cabinetmaker and a merchant (his collaborators were very famous cabinetmakers such as Mathieu Criaerd, Dautriche, Delaitre Jacques Dubois, Topino ...), his workshop was very prosperous and the works that came out of it all reveal a very sure taste. He very quickly acquired a great reputation.
From 1740, he received commissions from the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne and the Menus-Plaisirs. He benefited from the protection of Madame de Pompadour and counted among his clients great connoisseurs both in France and abroad.
