Charles Korschann French Art Nouveau Bronze Vase

About

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. It is signed on the back, "Ch. Korschann Paris" and stamped on the bottom by the foundry "Louchet." Circa 1900. (MG #16110)
