Description

Direct from Paris, a Magnificent Original French Art Nouveau Gold Plated Bronze Serving Tray by Renowned French sculptor Albert Marionnet, an Art Nouveau Master.  Albert Marionnet was born on March 15, 1862, in Paris, France. Growing up in a city that was a hotbed of artistic experimentation, Marionnet showed early signs of artistic talent. He enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he studied under prominent sculptors of the time. Marionnet's education exposed him to the prevailing artistic currents, but it was the burgeoning Art Nouveau movement that truly resonated with his creative sensibilities.

Albert Marionnet's contribution to the Art Nouveau movement lies in his ability to seamlessly blend natural forms with the sculptural medium. Unlike some of his contemporaries who focused on two-dimensional representations, Marionnet brought a three-dimensional vitality to his works. His sculptures often depicted elongated figures intertwined with vines, flowers, and other organic elements, creating a harmonious fusion of human and natural forms. Albert Marionnet's talent did not go unnoticed, and he received several awards and accolades throughout his career. In 1895, he garnered critical acclaim and the prestigious Legion of Honor award for his sculpture "Ephemeral Spring," a piece that epitomized the ephemeral and fleeting beauty of nature. This recognition catapulted Marionnet into the spotlight, solidifying his status as a leading figure in the Art Nouveau movement.

In addition to national honors, Marionnet's work gained international recognition. His sculptures were featured in exhibitions across Europe, drawing attention for their unique blend of elegance and naturalism. Marionnet's participation in the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris further elevated his profile, as his works captivated audiences and critics alike. The exposition served as a global stage for the Art Nouveau movement, and Marionnet's contributions played a pivotal role in shaping its reception.

Albert Marionnet stands as a pivotal figure in the history of Art Nouveau sculpture. His ability to meld human and natural forms, his innovative use of materials, and his commitment to breaking away from artistic conventions distinguish him as a trailblazer of the movement. The recognition and awards Marionnet received during his career underscore the impact of his contributions, not only on the Art Nouveau movement but also on the broader trajectory of sculpture in the early 20th century. This amazing gold plated bronze serving tray is a testament to his artistic genius and master craftsmanship.  It measures 37.00 cm. in length to the tips of the handles, 24.80 cm. across at its widest point and weights a massive 2,292 grams.  It truly in excellent condition and is signed “A. Marionnet”.
