Fanny Rozet broke through the glass ceiling as a French artist. In 1896, she was the first female sculptor to be accepted into the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, which was reserved for male artists. One of her striking Art Deco style ceramic lamps is now on display at WMODA, thanks to the generosity of Caroline D’Antonio

Fanny Rozet (1881-1958)

In 1904, Rozet began exhibiting at the at the salons of the Société des Artistes Francais in Paris.  She received Honorable Mentions and was awarded bronze and silver medals for applied art in 1924 and 1926.  Rozet worked in bronze, ivory, terracotta and other ceramics, producing decorative objects and Art Deco style lighting. The ceramic lamp at WMODA is finished in a craquelle finish in subtle pastel tones. Rozet also sculpted the same subject as a bronze lamp.
