007. The Nymph
Watercolor and guache on paper

The vase is based on a design called vase Boizot (after the 18th century designer, Louis-Simon Boizot), made at the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory in 1868. The decorator Solon painted the figure of a nymph rowing a boat in pâte sur pâte. The pâte on the original vase is pink. The vase is currently in the Sèvres Museum, Paris.
