Madame de Pompadour (née Poisson) – Cindy Sherman

In commemoration of Madame de Pompadour (née Poisson) – famous courtesan and mistress of King Louis XV of France – Cindy Sherman has cast herself in the role of Pompadour in this exquisite 21-piece tea set. Made from Limoges porcelain, after the original design commissioned by Pompadour in 1756, creative chameleon Sherman challenges the idea of identity and ownership, utilizing a complex photo-silkscreen process to replace the courtesan’s portrait with her own. Signed and numbered by the artist, the tea set is available in a range of colours: apple green, rose, royal blue, and yellow. Each colour has been produced in a limited edition of 75.
