"Vase with Classical Nudes," Rare, Unique Vase with Male Nudes by Mayodon

About

Richly glazed in tones of ruddy brown, ivory and dark chocolate, this stunning vase by Jean Mayodon features a series of medallions with classical nude male figures in various poses. One figure is shown running with arms raised, others are shown in recumbent positions, and the fourth is shown going to battle with sword and shield. Mayodon was one of France's great practitioners of what we now call Art Deco during its heyday in the 1920s and 1930s, and he favoured sculptures and vessels executed in ceramic or porcelain. His male figures tend to have wide shoulders and imposing figures and his glazes are rich and atmospheric. The decorative design here is especially distinctive, including a checkerboard pattern on the upper and lower portions of the vase.
