French Art Nouveau Side Table by Edouard Colonna

A French Art Nouveau mahogany side table with carved decoration in an abstract curvilinear vegetal motif by Edouard Colonna (1862-1948). Along with Louis Comfort Tiffany, Edouard Colonna was one of the main designers who worked for Siegfried Bing and who, under Bing's guidance, was responsible for the creation of what is known today as the Modern Style, or Art Nouveau. Colonna is remembered for his tasteful elegance and his use of abstract forms to create a graceful linear rhythm and dynamic intertwining lines. While he occasionally started with a floral motif, Colonna abstracted nature to create the impression of a flower bud or bloom held within a carefully constructed geometric scheme. This design scheme is evident in the delicate carvings ornamenting each leg of the table and in the overall rhythm of the piece. Colonna furniture, jewelry and designs for small objects like scarf and money holders would become the backbone of Bing's business. By 1898 a number of his works were on display at Bing's L'Art Nouveau. A similar table is pictured in: "The Paris Salons 1895-1915, Vol. III: Furniture", by Alastair Duncan, Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 1996, p. 109.

Spanish Art Nouveau Armchairs by Joan Busquets

A pair of Spanish Art Nouveau armchairs with giltwood frames by Joan Busquets. Made for Antonio Gaudi's Palacio Güell, Barcelona, Joan Busquets crafted much of Gaudi's furniture. A member of a family that was long involved in the design and manufacture of furniture in Spain, Joan Busquests was a proponent of Art Nouveau and modernism at the turn of the 20th century Spain. Most often associated with the architect and designer Antonio Gaudi and the movement specific to the Catalan region of Barcelona, Busquets's designs encompass a broader range of European Art Nouveau, particularly those of France and Belgium. His furniture is often reduced in scale, embodies the rococo in an inventive way and uses gilding to enhance and lighten design, as well as to serve as a reflective element. This chair model looks identical to a suite of furniture designed in collaboration with Antonio Gaudi for the Güell Palace, Barcelona that is pictured in situ in a photograph from the palace. These chairs appear to be identical to those pictured. Circa 1903 From 1840 on, Joan Busquets produced furniture for numerous distinguished clients in Barcelona, and also supplied the aristocracy in Madrid, Cuba, Puerto Rico and the republics of Central and South America. The leitmotiv of Busquets's firm was the golden sunflower with sinuous stem (to which must be added other motifs based on flora and fauna, such as lilies, orchids and snails), evident in his furniture designs. Provenance: Pedro Uhart, Paris Allan Stone Gallery, New York (acquired from the above ca. 1986) Exhibited: New York, Allan Stone Gallery, Furniture by Gaudi and Busquets, September 9 - November 26, 1996.

The lower tier is signed in marquetry Gallé and with inscription A Monsieur Alfred Sire/Le Comité Franco Britannique de Lorraine/Nancy/1908. (Alfred Sire was the representative in Gt.
