Art History

The secretary-bookcase's painted and gilded fretwork in imitation of brass inlay, the tight stenciling on the apron, the columns with gilded capitals, and the massive paw feet below gilded cornucopia brackets are typical of painted New York secretaries and pier tables. Its stately ornament, informed by classical antiquity, is in the Neoclassical style popular in American architecture and decorative arts of the 1820s and 1830s. Related to a signed piece by cabinetmaker Robert Fisher (active 1824 37), this unsigned masterwork may have been made in his workshop as well.
