Austrian Art Nouveau Bust of Ophelia by Josef Öfner

An Austrian Art Nouveau patinated bronze bust of Ophelia by Josef Öfner. Like the sculpture by Maurice Bouval, Öfner depicts Ophelia as a sleeping woman adorned with flowers. The sculpture rests on a painted wood base. The Austrian sculptor Josef Öfner (born in Tannheim, Austria in 1868) studied under Auguste Kühne and Otto König and was active in Vienna around the turn-of-the-20th-century. Like many of his peers, Öfner applied his skills to both decorative and visual arts, producing gilt bronze vases and trays in addition to figural busts.

Chalon "Octopus Dancer" Sculpture

A French Art Nouveau gilt bronze figural sculpture by Louis Chalon. Chalon''s dancing woman with an octopus at her feet, one of its tendrils wrapped around her leg, is a pure expression of feminine sensuality. Her veils summon the Orient, imbuing her with exoticism. Her freeform dance movement and extended limbs enact her sexual ecstasy. The piece explores the turn-of-the century fascination with Japanese shunga, artwork that depicts sensual pleasures. Many showed women being engulfed by an octopus in varied and multiple ways. A similar sculpture is pictured in: "Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris," by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p 101.
