Philippe Wolfers, La Fée au Pavon, c.1901

Project for a lamp. Watercolour, gouache.

Scanned from the book "Jugendstil" by Gabriele Fahr-Becker. Click image for 800 x 664 version.

From the book: "The famous Peacock lamp was a true sensation at the Salon National des Beaux-Arts exposition. It's a magnificent example of symbolism in Art Nouveau, but at the same time its concept contradicts every law of functionality."
