Early 20th Century French Cold-Painted Ceramic Beetle Sculpture by Ernest Dubois

About the Item

Early 20th century french cold-painted had-crafted ceramic beetle sculpture by Ernest Dubois By: Ernest Dubois Material: ceramic, paint Technique: cast, pressed, painted, hand-painted, hand-crafted Dimensions: 6 in x 4 in Date: early 20th century Style: Belle Époque, Art Nouveau Place of origin: France This early 20th century french painted ceramic sculpture by Ernest Dubois depicts a beetle perched on a mound. Executed with vivid detail, the insect's anatomy is meticulously rendered, with careful attention to its legs and head. The form is enlivened by hand-painted emerald hues evoking vegetation, providing a vibrant contrast against the ceramic surface. Subtle and refined, the piece exemplifies the organic sensibility of Art Nouveau. Dubois, a student of Chapu and Falguière, was a sculptor and medalist known for his naturalistic style during the Belle Époque. His detailed observation of nature is evidenced in the lifelike beetle and the richly colored painted accents. Signed by the artist and molded with finesse, the sculpture combines exotic color with the graceful natural forms favored in early 1900s France. The painted ceramic captures Dubois' meticulous attention to detail and nature in a gracefully organic style.
