About this artwork

The iridescent colors of this vase were made using the eosin glazing process, a technique perfected in 1893 at Zsolnay, the preeminent Hungarian ceramics manufactory at the turn of the 20th century. The decoration of the vase—including stylized depictions of golden trees and pendant clusters of pink and ruby flowers—is attributed to József Rippl-Rónai who also designed other decorative arts.

Rippl-Rónai spent 15 years in Paris, where he was part of a collective of young painters known as the Nabis (Prophets), a group that included Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard, and Maurice Denis.
