About The Work

This soup tureen with accompanying platter, is based on the original design by Madame de Pompadour in 1756. Ms. Sherman has made the focal point of the design a photograph of herself as Madame de Pompadour.

Cindy Sherman has created this Limoges porcelain tureen set in a limited edition after the original design commissioned by Madame de Pompadour (née Poisson) in 1756 at the Manufacture Royal de Sèvres.

Sherman’s image of herself as Madame de Pompadour has been transferred onto porcelain through a complex process which requires up to 16 photo-silkscreens.
