At the moment I haven't been able to identify the creator of this
very stylish vase.
Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the
wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern
artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color
over the representational or realistic values retained by
Impressionism. While Fauvism as a style began around 1900 and
continued beyond 1910, the movement as such lasted only a few years,
1904–1908, and had three exhibitions. The leaders of the movement
were Henri Matisse and André Derain
