Depicting elegant ladies in sumptuous gardens belongs to a long-standing tradition in art that made Romanticism such a key part of our culture. In Lladro Ladies From Aranjuez Vase, Lladro revisits this subject matter and raises it to the category of High Porcelain.
The Lladro Ladies from Aranjuez vase is particularly striking for the complex treatment of depth. Standing over 24.5 inches tall, this vase is surrounded by five ladies standing out in relief in the foreground, creating five different scenes. In the background one can notice the lush vegetation of a garden in bloom, and further back, we make out the arches of the arbor providing the ladies with shelter. A true virtuoso display of technique due to the large number of fragments required for the composition.
Absolutely instrumental in achieving this sense of depth are the decorative techniques practiced by the artists from Lladro Figurine's High Porcelain workshop. In lieu of the customary use of dissolved colors, the details of the skirts, flowers and embroideries are decorated with painting pastes. This adds extra complexity to the decoration of the Lladro Ladies From Aranjuez Vase, enhances its ornamentation and provides it with the thickness or transparency needed to achieve the realism of each element. For instance, the dresses are full and billowing as one would expect from the period, while the porcelain in the parasols is so thin that modeling them is painstakingly complex
The palette is another added value in this vase, with each lady decorated in her own range of colors: blue, red, yellow, green and white. The architectural elements have been conceived in whites and grays to enhance the stone finish of the typical arches. The harmonic coloring is complemented with the lavish vegetation surrounding the ladies. Apart from the willows in the background which help to provide greater depth, the floral decoration is particularly outstanding on two sides: one displays above all the bougainvillea, used for the first time in a Lladro Figurine while the other is decorated with roses, a Lladro signature and one of the flowers most difficult to reproduce. Also visible on the Lladro Ladies From Aranjuez Vase are calla lilies and wild flowers in two flowerpots, one on each side, totaling six varieties of flowers
Crowned with an elegant lid, the vase is varnished inside, thus protecting the porcelain for use as a flower vase. The result is a work worthy of being admired in detail from all angles. An exclusive piece to be thoroughly appreciated by the most discerning High Porcelain lover. The Lladro Ladies From Aranjuez Vase is a true work of art.
