    Description

    The Tyrolean-born Gustav Gurschner was one of the most famous Austrian sculptors of the 20th century. Thanks to his extraordinary talent and his comprehensive artistic education, he created numerous ornamental objects. His bronzes are especially popular with Art Nouveau collectors.

    This small bronze vase, so characteristic of Gurschner, is effectfully divided into two parts. The upper part is adorned with pearl-shaped drops combined with a stick-like decoration. The lower part is polished and its warm bronze tone contrasts with the partially patinated upper part.

    Artist

    Gustav Gurschner (Muehlendorf am Inn, Germany 1873 - 1971 Vienna) is among the most famous Austrian sculptors of the 20th century. He was a founding member of the Vienna Secession and president of the Künstlerverband Österreichischer Bildhauer (Association of Austrian Sculptors). As he lived in Paris for several years, one can recognize a clearly French influence in his characteristic, nature-related style. His remarkable talent and his extensive artistic education led him to create a large number of monuments and portraits, including the royal obelisk in Veszprém (Hungary) in 1908, the imperial monument of Hohenelbe (Czech Republic) before 1916 and a portrait of King Edward VII of England.
