Enamel on Copper Dish by Franz Bergmann

A wonderful enamel on copper dish signed by 20th century artist/craftsman, Franz Bergmann, titled “Professor Arcadius (no strings!)”. 6 1/4” diameter, marked: Professor Arcadius (no strings!), F. Bergmann. Minor losses on back edges (see photo) but otherwise in excellent condition.

Franz W. Bergmann (1898-1977) started life in Austria where, after serving in World War I, studied art at the National Academy of Art in Vienna. By 1924, he was exhibiting in Vienna and Stockholm. By 1929, he was living in the United States-New Your, Chicago and eventually and finally, in San Francisco where he became a celebrated artist, exhibiting at the Golden Gage International Exhibition in 1939. Bergmann also worked in jewelry, pottery and enamels. An accident in 1952 that left him with two broken legs, led him to concentrate on enamels. By 1959 he was considered one of the “leading enamel artists”, exhibiting in the seminal exhibition, “Enamels” at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York.

Information taken directly from “Painting with Fire Masters of Enameling in America, 1930-1980” by Bernard N. Jazzar and Harold B. Nelson.
