Art Nouveau Secessionist Centerpiece Jardiniere Planter, 1900s, Austrian

About

Antique Art Nouveau Jardiniere/centerpiece, circa 1870-1880. The overall shape seems to be taken from a viking drakkar with the mooring rings and celtic symbols, while the center theme featuring a circle of woman holding hands and dancing. The tureen is made out of bronze who shows now a nice patina ranging between green and gold. The original lining is made out petwer. This restrained geometric aesthetic of Viennese and German Art Nouveau was shortly to become the characteristic of modernist productions. Measures: 5.91 in. H x 18.9 in. W x 6.3 in. D 15 cm H x 48 cm W x 16 cm D Art Nouveau is French for new art. The term was originally used in various articles published throughout 1884 to 1890 in the Belgian avant-garde publication Art Moderne. The term was familiarised in France by the opening of a furnishing and novelty shop in Paris in 1895 by the dealer Siegfried Bing, named Maison Art Nouveau, which displayed furniture and new designs for interiors such as glassware by Tiffany and Emile Galle´, and exotic imported goods. Known also in Europe as Jugendstil or ‘youth style’, the art form began in the 1880s as a result of the Arts and Crafts Movement, which rejected the mass-produced techniques of industrialization. Art Nouveau developed a new style of exuberant curving lines, assymetrical design and elements of fantasy. It took on a wealth of different and at times conflicting orientations, spreading to varying degrees to a number of major European cities, such as Brussels, Glasgow, Munich, Nancy, Barcelona, and Vienna. This restrained geometric aesthetic of Viennese and German Art Nouveau was shortly to become the characteristic of modernist productions. In Austria, the avant-garde Secessionist movement adopted their work, with its simplification and functionalism. The Vienna Secession grew out of a dissatisfaction with the traditional practices of the Kunstlerhaus- genossenschaft; an association which could have been called the Vienna Academie. This reappraisal of the status of the applied arts became a fundamental issue in the Secessionist movement. Realizing the need to find craftsmen who shared their high standards and objectives if quality designs were to be realised, Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser co-founded the Wiener Werksta¨tte in 1903 Their severely rectilinear designs dominated production through the early years of the Werksta¨tte and are notable for their geometric refinement and elegant simplicity; an antidote to the ornament derived from historical models and the exuberance found in continental Art Nouveau. There was no strict coda or written philosophy attached to the Vienna Secession but to strive for "art as life" or an art which did not distinguish between 'great art' and the crafts, or art for the rich and art for the poor, was high on their agenda.
