Louis Majorelle, for all his renown in the realm of Art Nouveau, is actually known and celebrated by academics and collectors for infusing the opulence of a bygone era into creations that are simultaneously considered hallmarks of the Art Nouveau style. In this case, the wonderful sabots on the legs harken back to the beauty of the Baroque.
