The goal of the association “Le Cercle Guimard” is to promote, for a general public as well as the relevant authorities, the architect and decorator Hector Guimard (1867-1942).
In this third article, and then in the next one, we address the collaboration between Muller & Cie and Hector Guimard.
In this second article we look more precisely at the collaborations between Muller & Cie and the artists and architects of this artistic movement.
We are starting a series of five articles dedicated to the ceramist company Émile Muller in Ivry and which will give an overview of his creations in the field of Art Nouveau. In this first article we discuss the history of the company and the variety of its creations.
In this third article, we examine the possible origins of the fake subway bronze surrounds that flourished on the American market from the late 1980s. The tracks are multiple but one or two of them are more likely to be the right ones.
The open bronze subway surround sold in 2019 by Bonhams in New York City was in fact the fourth fake surround of this nature that we have been informed of, all of which are present on American territory. We present them below in the order in which they came to our knowledge.
In March 2019 we were contacted by the representative in France of the American branch of a well-known British auction house: Bonhams. They suggested that we give our opinion on an “exceptional Guimard ensemble”
