ca. 1910
20th c
11 1/2 in. x 9 in. (29.21 cm x 22.86 cm)

Max Laeuger, German, (September 30, 1864–December 12, 1952)

Object Type: Ceramic
Creation Place: Europe, Germany
Medium and Support: Earthenware
Credit Line: Purchased With Funds Contributed by the 2001 Long Beach Museum of Art Collectors Circle
Accession Number: 2001.30

This monumental vase is a fine example of Laeuger's early work. The raised surface, which gives the piece a rich tactile, sculptural quality, is created through application of thin clay slips applied prior to the final glazes. Laeuger was interested in and influenced by Near Eastern ceramic techniques and by the floral and vegetal design motifs seen on Near Eastern ceramics. This vase's lush lemon and leaf design may also reflect Laeuger's awareness of the innovations of French Fauve artist Henri Matisse.
