Georges Hoentschel French

Not on view

Hoentschel was an interior decorator and a collector of medieval and eighteenth-century decorative art. Like his close friend Jean Carriès, he designed Art Nouveau ceramics and was the architect of the pavilion of the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. This stoneware vase features an architectural framework that adds visual contrast to the naturalistically carved floral decoration.
