Pierre Le Faguays

French, 1892-1962

Pierre Le Faguays was a master at capturing the minute details of the female form in motion. His exceptional Art Deco style transcended sculptures with stunning table lamps, desk accessories and home accents. Le Faguays’s quality is remarkable, and his distinctive pieces are rare, making his works of art highly collectible. 

Born in 1892, in Rezé, France, Le Faguays received formal training both in Paris and Switzerland. In Geneva, he met Marcel Bouraine and Max Le Verrier. The three remained lifelong friends, and together founded the Le Verrier foundry, which produced many of Le Faguays’s pieces. Le Faguays was a member of several artist groups, including La Stele, Evolution and the Salon, and designed many pieces for Goldscheider under the La Stele label.

Not all of Le Faguays’s pieces have a stamp with his name. Le Faguays used two other pseudonyms, Raymond Guerbe and Fayral, the family names of his wife and mother. While the name stamps differ, the style remains the same. Le Faguays used a range of media, such as spelter, stone, wood, alabaster, ceramics, terracotta, pâte de verre, zinc and wrought iron. His most popular items were portrayals of dancers sculpted in ivory and bronze.

Le Faguays was recognized with numerous awards and exhibitions. His works were on display at Le Salon d’Automne in 1920 and the Salon of French Artists in 1922. In 1925, Arthur Goldscheider’s pavilion showed his work at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts. In 1927, he received the French Medal of Honor and an honorable mention at Le Salon des Artistes Français. In 1937, the Exposition Internationale in Paris exhibited his work. He was a member of the Legion of Honor and the Order of Leopold.
