Decorative plate with human figure design by Hans Erni, printed by Matthey Beyrand Limoges France.
This stunning piece was created ... moreDecorative plate with human figure design by Hans Erni, printed by Matthey Beyrand Limoges France.
This stunning piece was created as a prototype for a line of porcelain Limoges dishes that was never released, resulting in an extremely limited edition. Here, Erni works in a shimmering mid-century-inspired palette of thoughtfully balanced warm and cool hues, seamlessly blending classical renderings of three-dimensional form with two-dimensional design. The porcelain is practically weightless, with a small wire looped securely through the back for effortless, professional-quality hanging.
About Hans Erni, artist laureate of Switzerland: "Strongly influenced by Mondrian, Kandinsky, Braque, Picasso, Calder and Moore, with whom he exhibited in Paris in the 1930s, Erni ... rank[ed] as the national artist of Switzerland ... All of Erni's recent works continue to reflect what the late Sir Herbert Read, the distinguished Harvard art professor and historian, characterized as 'certainly the most talented' and one of the 'very few artists in the Western World (who) have been brave enough to protest' the worldwide movement to eliminate humanism in art." (Printed in "Hans Erni: The Seventh Decade" exhibition catalogue by Riji Gallery, New York, 1981)
Erni exhibited extensively throughout Europe, appearing in prominent exhibitions in England, France, Poland and (at the time) West Germany, as well as in the United States and Japan.
