Claudius Linossier Dinanderie "Maenad" Charger

$ 75,000
  • Description
    This French Art Deco Charger, by Claudius Linossier, was created using the technique known as dinanderie, which involved decorating hammering out copper vessels to produce subtle but beautiful gradations of color. The charger features a Maenad, a female follower of Dionysus. During the orgiastic rites of Dionysus, maenads roamed the mountains possessed by the god, performing frenzied, ecstatic dances. These Maenads were often depicted on attic pottery friezes, dancing between satyrs. The gesture of hands behind the head was performed in Emelia, the dance of tragedy, performed to enhance events performed on the stage.
