Tanagra, Daum

 

In honour of Tanagra herself and the 40th Anniversary, Daum creates a special edition of the Tanagra Daum Statue. It all goes back to the 1870s to 1880s, wheren a Greek statuette made its appearance in French museums. Named Tanagra, this figurine was a terracotta statuette that appeared in Greece in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. With finely worked details, it represented a woman wrapped in a draped coat. Figuratively, the name is thus attributed to a young woman remarkable for her grace and finesse.

 

During this period. Antonin Daum and Almaric Walter developed a technique of translucent glass paste. Antonin Daum chose Tanagra, this Greek woman of natural elegance, as one of the first models he created. Thus, “Tanagra with a fan” was created by Daum in 1905.

 

Originally created in terracotta color with a slight graduation of color, it is now adorned with sublime shades of red for the exclusive creation dedicated to the 40th anniversary of Tanagra.
