Library table, c. 1800

Not on Viewexpand_more

This library table formed part of the elaborate interior decoration of Thomas Hope's own picture gallery at his London residence on Duchess Street. The table was published in Hope's 1807 Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, which illustrated his highly idiosyncratic neoclassical furniture.

Two paintings now in the Institute's collection once hung in Hope's galleries: Titian's The Temptation of Christ and Vasari's Six Tuscan Poets.
