Paul Moreau-Vauthier
La Première Parure (Eve) -- Art Nouveau oversized bas-relief

circa 1900

About

La Premier Parure is a French term for a perfect match, generally used for jewelry and ornamentation. In this case, it is used as a metaphor for Adam and Eve. This monumental bronze plaque shows Eve nude in her ornate garden. This work was part of a pair but we only have the Eve part. The work is meticulously rendered in the Art Nouveau style with some hints of Art Deco in the typography. Signed lower right. Circa early 1900's Bronze with gilt. There are screw ports on verso to attach to a wall. The work is quite heavy weighing in about 300 to 350 lbs. aka Gabriel Jean Paul Moreau-Vauthier. Moreau-Vauthier first achieved public renown with his statue La Parisienne shown at the Exposition Universelle (1900) in Paris, and is now perhaps best known for his memorial wall to the Victimes des révolutions (Mur des Fédérés) on Avenue Gambetta, Paris. He also created an allegorical work to commemorate Louis Blériot's first cross-Channel airplane flight in 1909. The work is monumental at 101 inches and will be a signature Floor to ceiling piece for any space. The surface is very reflective and can be lit with a gold light to create a very dramatic look. - Given the height and weight ( at least 300lbs we suggest 1stdibs does the shipping )
