"Frieze of Male Nudes," Large, Highly Rare Art Deco Vase by Goor for Mougin

About

One of the most striking -- and rare -- vases ever produced by the Mougin ceramics firm in France, this vase ringed by four nude male figures clasping hands was sculpted by Gaston Goor. The artist was famous for illustrating a number of books by Roger Peyrefitte and others in France. Goor was deeply influenced by the paintings he found at the Louvre in his youth, and his work often depicts male figures with an implicit, or sometimes explicit, homoerotic theme. This piece is gorgeously glazed, in hues subtly moving from creamy-tones toward the top to rosier tones below, and was produced by Joseph and Pierre Mougin, who were closely associated with the Ecole de Nancy. They were known for ceramic pieces that are characterized by deep incised lines and gorgeous glazes.
