Juan Busquets

Pair of Art Nouveau Tabourets in the Catalan Modernisme Style

Spain, Late 19th century



Medium: Gilded wood with white painted finish

Dimensions: 19.5 in high x 17.5 in wide x 23 in deep

This beautiful pair of sinewy tabourets share subtly splayed legs and gently curling backs of giltwood. The cushions of the back and seat of each possess an elegant simplicity of form, a gentle understated quality that belies their extraordinarily plush comfort and support. These are a clear example of Catalan Modernisme, an answer to other such fin de siècle design movements in Europe such as Jugendstil, Secession, and Art Nouveau.

Bears a Busquets tag.
