  • La Cothurne
    By Agathon Léonard
    Located in Missouri, MO
    "La Cothurne" 1901 Gilt Bronze Approx 21.5" High (to raised hand) Signed and Dated Foundry Mark "Susse Freres" Originally modeled in white biscuit porcelain this Greek dancer is a from a set of eight created for a dining table. They were immediately successful when they were exhibited in the Sevres pavilion at the 1900 Exhibition. Individual figures could be ordered and "La Cothurne" proved the most popular. Their success led to the firm of Susse buying the right to cast versions in metal. Agathon Leonard (1841-1923) is one of the well-known French Art Nouveau sculptors. Born in Lille in 1841, he first studied there before moving to Paris where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Eugene Delaplanche. He gained recognition at the annual Expositiones Universelles, winning a Silver Medal there in 1889 and gold in 1900. His most important piece, Jeu L'echarpe, was the best known series of Sevres production at the turn of the century and sold out at the 1900 Expo in Paris and later was given as a gift by the French Gov't to Nicholas II at the Hermitage.

    By Franz von Stuck
    Located in Chicago, IL
    FRANZ VON STUCK (German, 1863-1928) There is a tension between the Apollonian and Dionysian in Stuck’s work. Nietzsche’s contemporary and a kindred spirit, Stuck valiantly searched for a way out of nihilism- beyond Good and Evil- by seeking to expose the psychological underpinnings of morality. He mined the depths of the subconscious and challenged long-held beliefs. With comprehensive inquiries into Franz von Stuck’s art such as the 1995 retrospective exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the 2013 exhibition held at Seattle’s Frye Art Museum, a once grossly overlooked artist is emerging from the shadows. The breadth of his influence on modern art is dazzling. Like many talented young art students, Stuck was plucked by Gerlach & Schenk publishers in Vienna to contribute illustrations for Allegories und Embleme and other publications beginning in 1878 for which he continued until 1888. He officially debuted as a painter in 1889 in Munich at the Artist Association where he was awarded a gold medal. Growing success in the next several years at exhibitions throughout Germany led to State-commissioned work and by age 30, Stuck had become a full professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. That same year, 1893, Stuck organized the first exhibition of the Munich Secession. Driving this avant-garde group was an anti-nationalist undercurrent which instead favored pluralism. This showed in a willingness to collaborate with artists from all places, an openness to varieties of styles and multi-disciplinary thought as well as a de-emphasis placed on any distinction made between the so-called high and applied arts. A shaper of these tenets, Stuck’s belief in the “total work of art” concept -or gesamtkunstwerk- was beautifully demonstrated in his Munich Villa Stuck...
