The Antechamber of the Western Apartment
The Western Apartment is distinguished by a wall decoration of floral tendrils with wildflowers, surrounding the prints hanging there. According to the inventory, in the times of Stanisław August, mainly French prints representing scenes from Ovid’s "Metamorphoses" could be found here. Some of them survived, bound by the king’s bookbinder, and the remaining ones, originating also from the 18th c., were purchased after the war; they were placed in the Antechamber, the Little Room and in the Bedroom.
It is worth noting two classical pieces of Polish furniture displayed in the Western Apartment: The Warsaw-style commode and the table made in the manufacture of the Radziwiłł family in Połonka in Ukraine and originating from royal collections.
