French Art Deco Pâte-de-Verre Glass Vase by Gabriel Argy-Rousseau

About

A French Art Deco glass pâte-de-verre vase, "Le Jardin des Hespérides (Garden of the Hesperides)," by Gabriel Argy-Rousseau, depicting three women in various poses picking apples from a tree. The women are in red; the apples are vibrant red. All are on a pale ground. Each woman picks from a tree with a brown trunk. The lower portion of the vase is darker red, resembling a floor, with a Greek key motif, circa 1926. Pictured in: "G. Argy-Rousseau: Les Pâtes de Verres", catalogue raisonné by Janine Bloch-Dermant (Paris: Les Editions de l'Amateur, 1990), pages 72-73 & 208, cat. no. 26.01; color pictures in: "G. Argy-Rousseau: Glassware as Art" by Janine Bloch-Dermant, New York, Thames and Hudson, Inc., 1991, pages 72-73. Bloch-Dermant describes this vase as "a hymn to nature," and "a masterpiece... outside of time." She adds that it is "a reference to Greece", from which Argy-Rousseau "inherited his feeling for nature." Bloch-Dermant cites Attic vases of the fifth century B.C., or the tragicomic theme of Greek masks as influences. "(G. Argy-Rousseau: Glassware as Art" by Janine Bloch-Dermant, New York, Thames and Hudson, Inc., 1991, pages 35, 41, 66) Signed, ''G. Argy-Rousseau, France 28557''.
