Raoul Larche – “Loie Fuller” Table Lamp

SOLD !

An Art Nouveau fire-gilded bronze statue, also a table lamp, depicting the dancer Lose Fuller in a dancing pose with her fanning silk cloths that could encompass as much as 150 meters of silk. She invented glass plates in the stage to illuminate the fanning cloths with lamps from below, and that was revolutionary at the time.

She performed at the Folies Bergere theater in Paris and became famous among artists who wanted to portray or paint her. Koloman Moser of the Wiener Werkstaette and Henri Toulouse Lautrec made her the subject of their work.

The lamp is signed by Raoul Larche and by the bronze caster Siot-Decauville Paris and was made around 1900. This version is very popular among Art Nouveau collectors.

Raoul Larche (1860-1912)
Raoul Larche was a French sculptor who was mainly inspired by the Art Nouveau movement with its mobile lines. He became most famous with this image of Lose Fuller. He made this statue in several variations and his creations are presented in several international museums.
