Desk with arte povera decor of chinoiserie scenes on a black background in large animated gold-colored reserves.
It is composed of three rows of drawers and a blind drawer composed of lockers opening by means of the pullers which support the flap. He discovers a green lacquered interior with 8 drawers.
The decoration of this piece of furniture can be attributed to Vizzo, an artist of whom little is known, but who signed a very important double body piece of furniture with great similarities in terms of the painted subjects. Using this comparative method, we find similar decorations on a pair of consoles and a pair of tables kept at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
Throughout the 18th century, Venice was one of the most important centers for lacquerware. The Venetian lacquerers work with a palette of very bright colors highlighting the curved forms of the furniture.
