DESCRIPTION

Limited edition sculpture of a Bacchante with a panther in matt black porcelain.

The beauty of women is enhanced by the imposing force of the feline. With this spectacular creation, the artists of the Lladró High Porcelain workshop contribute their own vision of a classic theme which has inspired great masterpieces. With a theme based on the Bacchae of Ancient Greece, later recreated by Renaissance and Baroque painters such as Titian, Michelangelo and Rubens, the temperament and sumptuous decoration of this sculpture reminds us of the painting, Bacchante with a panther (1855) by the French painter William Adolphe Bouguereau.

The sensuality of this limited edition is accentuated by the semi-nudity of the woman and her very white skin. There is a contrast between this clarity and the decorative richness in the dark tones of her skirt and, above all, with the Panther upon which she is seated. The wealth of finishes, hues, backgrounds and textures is achieved through the combination of matte porcelain and complex enamelling techniques, all applied by hand.

Lladró is the leader in luxury porcelain since 1953 and have developed proprietary processes that resulted in a wide range of products and styles that is unparalleled in the world of porcelain. The brand still makes every piece in their workshop in Valencia, Spain.
