Vintage art nouveau picture nude silhouettes the four seasons summer fidus 1920s. Strking. Black silhouettes of five children frolicking on a pier against a gold background. There is a duck taking off from the water on the far right and reeds are rendered behind the pier against the sky.
In the far left is the name Tallimit – in the far right – Fidus – 94

Intricate and ornate frame. Scrolls, flowers and teeny inside and outside raised beading.

Back label reads – The Four Seasons – By Fidus - Summer – No. 5074 – Size 3 x 7 – Tallimit Art – C.A. Richards – Boston Mass – Reg. U S Pat

Outside dimensions – 7 ¼ inches by 3 5/8 inches

The back has an easel stand attached by a black ribbon. Also a round metal circle attached with a black ribbon on the top for hanging.

Gold background color lush and uniform.

The artwork was designed by Hugo Hoppener (October 8, 1868 - February 23, 1948) who signed his works “Fidus”, the faithful one. He was given the name by Bavarian painter Karl Diefenbach who he was imprisoned with for nude sun bathing.

Good condition. Image, glass hanging and easel mechanisms in good shape. Frame is stunning. One wee small missing area of the outside gold bead design. It is in the upper right hand corner and hard to detect. See photos.

Happy to provide more pictures.
