French Art Nouveau Bronze Vase by Korschann

French Art Nouveau vase by Charles Korschann in gilt-bronze. The vase has a diamond shaped base that tapers to a narrow rounded top, where it intersects with swirling stems and flower buds that form the handle, and features sculpted decoration in relief. On the front, we see a nude female figure emerging from a field of poppies with flowers in her long, flowing hair. The composition is all about movement and abundance with the entire space carpeted in flowers and the maiden's hair spilling out over the frame. The reverse, on the other hand, is more sedate and controlled, depicting a stylized arrangement of flower buds, stems and leaves in a structured, ordered composition, executed in a lower relief with thin incised lines echoing the shape of the three flower buds like ripples in the water. The vase combines many common motifs from Symbolist and Art Nouveau design: bats (shown in relief on the top), poppies and seductive women, or femmes fatales. Together, they evoke a mysterious dream-state, suggested in the identification of poppies with opiates and bats with the night.

French Art Nouveau Patinated Bronze Vase by Charles Korschann

A French Art Nouveau gilt and patinated bronze vase by Charles Korschann. The front of the vase displays a bare breasted woman, wearing a scant, diaphanous veil that leaves suggestion of the feminine form. The figure is surrounded by poppies in bloom and holding a leafy stalk with poppy buds in her hand. Her closed eyelids reference the internal world of dreams and hallucinations. The poppy is symbolic of the Fleurs du Mal, and the trend for opium and drug experimentation that was so popular in 1900. Titled "Reveries of a Poppy". Pictured in: "Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris" by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p. 163.

French Art Nouveau Patinated Bronze Vase by Charles Korschann

French Art Nouveau Patinated Bronze Figural Vase

A French Art Nouveau patinated bronze figural vase, entitled "Bacchanalia", by Antonin Larroux. The vase is called "Bacchanalia", inspired by the infamous Ancient Greek play, the Bacchae by Eurpides. In this play, Dionysus punishes Pentheus, the king of Thebes, and his mother, Agave, by driving all of the women of Thebes into a mad frenzy. The women of the city run off into the woods with Dionysus to have a bacchanalia. The vase captures the moment of the play where Dionysus has hypnotized the women of Thebes and they are all taking part in a wild orgy outside of the city. The female figures' faces all show them in a dazed ecstasy, with a grinning Dionysus at the center. The amphoric shape of the bronze is an allusion to Ancient Greek vessels, which is appropriate for a piece of art dedicated to the god of wine. A similar vase is pictured in: "The Paris Salons 1895-1915, Vol. V: Objects d'Art and Metalware" by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1999, p. 370.

Artist: Larroux
Signed: “Larroux'' and marked “C.A.” and “2”
