Bed
c.1800-1810
Attr. Thomas Hope

This bed is among the most original pieces of English Regency furniture. Dominant in English interiors from about 1800 to 1830, the Regency style perpetuated the classical taste of the late eighteenth century but was more academic and archaeologically correct. This bed closely resembles furnishings designed by Thomas Hope - collector, connoisseur, and a pivotal figure in the classical revival of Regency England - for one of his residences. Its architectural form and bronze mounts derive from ancient and Renaissance models, The greyhounds, however are inspired by medieval tomb sculpture and exemplify the more romantic interpretation of historical sources characteristic of Hope’s influential furniture designs. The bed may have been used for resting - a day bed - or for sleeping. The modern upholstery recreates elaborate examples in Rudolf Ackermann’s The Repository of the Arts, as influential periodical during the Regency period.

The Warden of Hell. Somehow up until now I had managed to avoid designing his front side. This made doing this series of illustrations really difficult. It was Zimmay’s idea in the first place to give his chest eye emotive capabilities, which I really loved. Sadly I failed at getting them into the CI on time, but here they are for your viewing pleasure. c:
