"Conch Shells," Midcentury Footed Enamel Bowl by Drerup

About

Drenched in saturated color -- purples, sky blue, burnt sienna, and touches of brilliant red -- this unique and very special bowl was crafted by Karl Drerup, the brilliant enamel artist who created a magnificent body of work in America. Drerup immigrated to America from Germany in 1937, his anti-Nazi activism and his wife's Jewish heritage forcing them to leave Germany. In his early years in America, he worked in ceramics with Franz Joseph von Tury, but later he focused on enamel painting, prompted in part by a conversation with Tommi Parzinger, who noted that no one was creating fine enamels in New York. Drerup moved to New Hampshire in the 1940s, and there he created a stream of brilliantly-hued scenes of stylized animals and humans, often in mythological or fantastical scenes.
