    Description

    This vase with its rectangular shape, slightly tapering towards the top, impresses with its massive size and its floral relief with plant decoration in the upper, recessed half.
    Gurschner was a master craftsman at the K.K. Kunst-Erzgießerei in Vienna at the time when they were commissioned to produce the foliage for the dome of the Vienna Secession building. Thus, one can assume that this imposing laurel decoration also served as a source of inspiration for Gustav Gurschner’s own designs and floral decorations.

    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.
