Abildgaard, Nicolai Abraham (Danish painter and furniture designer, 1743-1809)

Note: Abildgaard was a leading Danish Neoclassical painter who also designed for his own use, ca. 1800, elegant Grecian furniture. Some of the pieces were quite archaeologically accurate, being copied from 5th-century BCE vases and decorated with painted panels imitating red figure vase painting. He also designed furniture for Prince Christian Frederick of Denmark that is far less accurate (ca. 1807).
