FIND A COR­NER, AND I START DRAW­ING.” In di­vine un­der­state­ment, Ar­gen­tinian illustrato­r Maia Bunge re­veals the ori­gins of this Em­pire-style sa­lon cap­tured in pen and ink (a com­mis­sion by its own­ers, the Duquesne Watelet de la Vinelle fam­ily). A Parisian trans­plant, Bunge spent a week in Bel­gium, draw­ing among the rich fur­nish­ings of the 1702 town­house. With added photograph­y and his­toric re­search, her vi­sion emerges as both doc­u­men­tary and idio­syn­cratic. It’s a de­light­ful in­vi­ta­tion to linger. re­gardele­monde.com
