"Abraham Roentgen (1711–1793) and his son David (1743–1807) were among 18th century’s most celebrated cabinetmaking. From around 1742 to its closing in the early 1800s their innovative designs were combined with intriguing mechanical devices to revolutionize traditional French and English furniture types. From its headquarters in Germany the workshop employed novel marketing and production techniques to serve an international clientele.Extravagant Inventions: The Princely Furniture of the Roentgens at the Metropolitan Museum of Art features sixty to sixty-five pieces of furniture and clocks—several of which have never before been lent for exhibition complemented by paintings and prints that depict these unrivaled masterpieces in contemporary interiors.
Extravagant Inventions is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City through January 27, 2013."
