Boites.

by Tracy Ann Koch

Charles Matton was a French artist who was best known for his enclosures or ‘boites’ – miniature representations of real-life interiors, including the studios of artists such as Vermeer, Bacon and Rembrant – which he built from 1985 until his death in 2008, painstankingly sculpting every detail, from broken sockets to peeling wallpaper.
