JEANNE JOZON (1868-1946) Art Nouveau monumental bronze vase ‘The dance’ (Loie Fuller)

signed on base ‘J. Jozon’, numbered and bears the foundry mark monumental bronze vase, the veiled dancer in gilt bronze, the vase in greenish brown patina height: 71 cm Executed circa 1903 Exhibited: L’Art Décoratif aux Expositions des Beaux-Arts, 1903, pl. 113, La Danse in earthenware by Pillivuyt and bronze edited Verlet The Art Nouveau dancer and choreographer Loie Fuller (1862-1928) conquered the famous Parisian cabaret Folies-Bergère on her opening night on November 5, 1892, by transforming her dances into syntheses of movement, colour and music. The electric lighting, together with the complex set of mirrors she used on stage, illuminated her immense swirling skirt and evoked the fluid and organic forms of Art Nouveau. Artists and writers of her time praised her talent; her art was received with much acclaim as an aesthetic revolution. The famous dancer was a muse for Art Nouveau artists such as François-Rupert Carabin, Jules Chéret, Alphonse Mucha, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Théodore Rivière, Pierre Roche and Jeanne Jozon. Loie Fuller had her theatre at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris; the architect Henri Sauvage designed it, and Francis Jourdain decorated it.
