André-Charles Boulle retrospective in Frankfurt
October 28-January 31
More than 150 works of André-Charles Boulle (1642-1732), Louis the XIVth's acclaimed cabinetmaker, are to be displayed in Frankfurt in the first major retrospective dedicated to the French master craftsman. Boulle was so influential that he gave his name to a technique called boulle, or buhl work, that swept Europe and was heavily imitated during the 18th and 19th centuries.
