Louis Zorra French Art Nouveau Plique a Jour Enamel, Gold and Freshwater Pearl Pendant(166 views)
Description: A French Art Nouveau 18 karat gold pendant/brooch with freshwater pearl drop and plique a jour enamel, depicting a maiden in profile against a sky with clouds and framed with pink poppy blossoms by Louis Zorra. The serpentine clouds, the woman's abundant tresses, and the flower tendrils all follow the organic curvilinear line associated with Art Nouveau . Nature, flowers and women are themes that were often explored in tandem by fin-de-siècle artists. Here they function together to create a harmonious and picturesque scene that delights the eye.
