Daum Nancy "Winter Landscape" Glass Vase
This French Art Nouveau "Winter Landscape" cameo glass vase by Daum Nancy features a group of stoic but barren trees in the foreground that sit on a crisp, frozen, snowy ground under a bright yellow and orange sky. In the background can be seen a forest in a dramatic tangle that verges on a great haze of foliage. The brightness of the amber backdrop in this composition cannot lift the chill that seems to emanate from the very heart of the glass masterpiece; the regal but barren tree, the expertly-etched ice, the crisp detail of the foreground meeting the haze that envelopes the background just as cool air meets warm all leaves the impression that this incredible work by Daum Nancy may actually be cold to the touch.
