Watercolor of Valentina’s Dinner Table by Mark Hampton

Original watercolor used for his book MARK HAMPTON ON DECORATING
Accompanying caption reads:
"The great Russian-born dress designer Valentina has a New York apartment on the East River at Fifty-Second Street where her dining room walls are covered in a Napoleonic wallpaper and her chairs are Louis XV. The Valentina table illustrated here includes a centerpiece in which a 19th-century Baccarat candelabra is surrounded by fruits and flowers. A set of ordinary rice bowls, which might have looked like cheap souvenirs anywhere else, look marvelous in her confident hands."
