Lalique from the land of the Rising Sun


lamour_laliqueLalique has drawn its inspiration from the land of the Rising Sun. A Japanese prince closely related to the emperor, Asaka Yasuhiko went to France in 1920’s. Having discovered Western art, he chose René Lalique to create four large stained glass windows for the ceremonial doors of the drawing room in his Tokyo palace – a masterpiece of style and technical prowess. This residence subsequently became the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum.

The main figurative motif pays tribute to woman: a woman flower dressed in feathers displaying her finery; a woman bird, a siren of Antiquity, she embodies majestic beauty and reveals to us the love that René Lalique devoted to women and flora. Packaging: Knoll.
