Gorgeous Art Noveau Sculpture Moreau France French Pewter Vase. Art Noveau Sculptural Vase Statement Piece Art Noveau Nude Biomorphic. Reclining Nude Naturalistic Birds in Flight Flowers Flowing Hair. Up for your perusal is this fabulous find. This is an extremely beautiful and unique item.The current owner acquired this vase sculpture over 30 years ago (1970s) from a local Los Angeles estate. Exact age is unknown, but based on the style I do believe this Art Noveau vase dates from about 1890. The reproductions done in the 1960s are typically much lighter in weight and sometimes have painted finishes. This vase is extremely heavy and solid.
Finish is a dark pewter tone. About 13" across by 18.5" tall. Dramatic and impressive in person. Based on my research the Moreau family is recognized for their sculptures. I believe this may have been cast from an original sculpture by Louis Auguste Moreau.
The Moreau Brothers were a well known decorative arts manufacturing firm. They were the third generation of the esteemed artist family from Dijon, France. In the late 1800s, Louis Auguste began experimenting in a new avant garde style which we now call Art Noveau. The style of this vase epitomizes the Art Noveau period with it's flowing lines, naturalistic nude, vines, branches, birds in flight, morning glories and flowing hair.
The brothers, as a result of a positive response to their art, set up the studio partnership L&F Moreau for reproducing their works in large numbers. In addition to being a truly wonderful example of Art Noveau, it is highly decorative and makes quite the statement due to it's impressive size. Please contact me with any questions. Size: About 13" across by 18.5" tall.
