Door, ca. 1923
This is a Door.
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
The floral pattern on Edgar Brandt’s wrought-iron door panel reflects Persian manuscript sources but possesses the boldness seen in contemporary textiles. After presenting the panel at the 1923 Salon d’Automne, Brandt added feet to make it freestanding. The Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired it within a year of the exposition.
It is credited
Lent by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Purchase, Edward C. Moore Jr. Gift, 1924 (24.133).
