Description
Joseph Chéret - Vase, Nocturnal idyll
France - 1920-1949 - Bronze

Bronze vase 'Idylle nocturne', signed by Joseph Chéret and numbered No. 20.

The decoration of this vase takes up the motifs already presented on the tryptic, namely a woman and Eros, under the gaze of the moon.

Joseph Chéret is a French sculptor, Carrier-Belleuse’s assistant, who distinguished himself from the studio productions by proposing his own works, presented at the Salon des Artists Français from 1863 on. He has created many sculptures, groups, but also vases and pots decorated with staged characters, as on this vase.
