Louis Comfort Tiffany "Poppy" Vase


The sophistication and serenity that characterizes traditional Japanese woodblock prints in also on full display in this Tiffany Studios New York Favrile Pottery "Poppy" vase. Clearly inspired by the dominance of line and reverence for nature that was ever present in the Japanese works, Tiffany's nearly monochromatic vase offers an elegantly refined composition of fallen leaves and flowering buds. The forms are executed in slight but impactful relief and shaped by carefully applied shadowing. The entire vase is rendered in creamy tones, with charcoal accents adding hints of depth.

Tiffany's great admiration for the Japanese woodblock prints that became available to Western markets in the late 1800s is evident in this remarkable composition that minimizes perspective and color in order for line to take center stage.
