This Original enamelled Tile, or Plaque, by the French Designer Jean Lurcat (1892-1966), remains in its Original Frame, and is signed on the reverse side.
The Motif of a Nude Dancing Woman with 2 Stars is quite wonderful, and I think one of his best motifs!! No inhibitions with her Wild Hair Flying!! On the upper left there appears to be a Flying Bird, and her left leg is bent in a shape that resembles a Cat!!
We rarely see this Design for Sale, and purchased this one on our last trip in France!!
The deep Golden Yellow Background is a compatible foil for the Black Design...the size of the Tile itself is approx. 8" x 8", and the frame size is approx. 12.5" x 12.5", and it is in Excellent Condition...it was difficult to photograph the proper color for the Mat, but it is actually a slightly Beige fine grained Linen (not pale blue!!) typical of of Linen Mats used during the 1950's. The Frame is gilded, as is the inset molding around the Tile.
A Beautiful Tile by one the of Best "Modernist" French Designers...an excellent artwork for your Moderne Home, that will fit in many small places!!
