He creates objects in which fantasy and dream mingle with the evocation of nature. Some elements like the hair, where as here the drape, take on strange importance.
Fix-masseau integrates in his works the most diverse materials, which reinforces the decorative aspect: the sculptor explores the expressive properties of ivory, ceramics, and researches special patinas for bronze. It thus declines inklers, candlesticks, vases. His marked taste for the female figure combined with floral motifs, his fascination with the unusual, his interest in domestic objects make him one of the representatives of art nouveau but also of symbolism.
This is a perfect illustration: an immense veil reveals more than it covers the nudity of a figure, priestess or magician, the face half hidden under the striking effect of the drape. The ivory box concentrates first of all the attention, and the precision of the material accords with the wonderful finish given to the way of wood. It is with such figures that the artist attracts attention, including that of the siot-decauville founder who publishes.
