    Height: 24" Width: 44" Depth: 21" 

    Rare Pair French Retour D'egypt Terracotta Lions Sculptures Statues Los Angeles

    Exceptional fine and rare pair of French Retour D'egypt period terracotta lions, circa 1790-1810. The French Egyptian Revival style or the retour d'Egypte refers to style that makes use of the motifs and imagery of ancient Egypt. By the end of the 18th century enthusiasm for ancient Egypt generated by Napoleon's unsuccessful conquest of Egypt and, in Britain, to Admiral Nelson's defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of the Nile in 1798. Napoleon took a scientific expedition with him to Egypt and this was the first time a major study of ancient Egypt was done. Publication of the expedition's work, the description de l'Égypte, began in 1809 and came out in a series though 1826 influencing a new way of life in France thru architecture and decorative arts. However, works of art, decorative arts, furniture and, in the field of architecture and garden follies, funerary monuments in the Egyptian style had appeared in scattered European settings from the time of the Renaissance. The Egyptian Revival style came out in a few waves in France before Napoleon during the ancient Régime Egyptian motifs were mixed with the neoclassical-Louis XVI style in architecture, furniture and decorative arts. A big surge hit France around 1798 during Napoleons Egyptian expedition. This was the first major Egyptian Revival period as this was the first time in history that a major study on Egypt was done. French people became fascinated with the ancient Egyptian history, culture, architecture and furniture. Egyptian ornamentation like scarab beetles, sphinxes, winged lions and lotuses details were incorporated into Classical style furniture and decorative arts creating a style known as a hybrid neo-Egyptian. The next wave was during the height of the French Romantic period 1820s-1850s. The Egyptian Revival emerged as a result of the famous archaeological digs of the first half of the 19th century and was primarily used for Tomb memorials, temples, and cemeteries and some decorative arts. This style is distinguished by its adaptation of Egyptian forms and motifs, sphinxes guarding buildings including lotus blossoms, Pharaoh's heads, the winged disk symbol of the sun God, as well as the use of bold bright colors. At the end of the 19th century 1870s-1890s the Egyptian Revival styles were in vogue once more. At the Height of the Victorian period the Egyptian style was even more elaborate than before. Often incorporated with Neo-Greek & Renaissance Revival styles. Victorians were even more fascinated with these rare finds and incorporated their motifs into jewelry, furniture, glass and Art pottery. Heavily ornamented overstuffed furniture made its way into homes, by way of the parlor suite. armchairs with gilt pharaoh's heads and goat feet, elegant sofa's with palmiform columns and lotus blossoms filled the middle class homes of France. Other items were made and reflect the population's desire for the exotic. Clocks and mantel (fireplace) garnitures featuring sphinxes and other Egyptian motifs were popular made in onyx or ivory alabaster trimed in gilt bronze with two matching obelisks that would flank the clock that was crowned with a bronze sphinx. Baccarat manufactured several gilt bronze and crystal items such as jardinieres, desk items, vases and jewel caskets. By the late 19th century Egyptian Revival designs merged with the Art Nouveau style. During the late 18th century and early 19th century Egyptian motifs were applied to a wide variety of Decorative arts objects. Publication of Napoleon's expedition's work, the Description de l'Égypte, began in 1809 and came out in a series though 1826, inspiring everything form sofas with Sphinxes for legs to tea sets painted with the pyramids. It was the popularity of the style that was new. Antique Dealer Los Angeles CA West Hollywood Melrose Ave La Cienega
