About

Brass with geometric coquille d'oeuf on black lacquer ground.
Signed in red lacquer Jean Dunand.

In 1912, Dunand learned the ancient and traditional art of Asian lacquerwork from the Japanese master lacquer artist Seizo Sugawara whom Eileen Gray had studied under. Sugawara, in turn, was taught Dunand's metalwork techniques. After World War I, Dunand developed a process of lacquerwork as superlative as that of his Asian predecessors. Yet it was Dunand who was credited with the most spectacular lacquer technique of all, coquille d'oeuf - the use of crushed eggshells soaked in lacquer producing a craqueleur effect, subtly delicate yet visually dramatic especially against a contrasting colored ground.

Variety of other Jean Dunand pieces available.
