Pierre Le Faguays Lighting

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.

Max Le Verrier, ‘Boubou’, French Art Deco Patinated Bronze Desk Lamp, Ca. 1920
By Max Le Verrier
Located in New York, NY
DETAILS Signed, original black & white marble base, period wiring and fittings. DIMENSIONS Height: 6.5 inches Width: 3.5 inches Depth: 5.5 inches ABOUT THE LAMP A charming and very funny monkey named Boubou, excited by some suspicious sounds, decided to shine a lantern and discover the source and origin. The sculptural interpretation of this scene with a simple plot by a wonderful French sculptor turns a seemingly small trivial table lamp into a real work of art - with such skill the author conveys its emotional state, a mixture of fright and curiosity! ABOUT THE ARTIST Louis Octave Maxime Le Verrier (French, 1891 – 1973), known more commonly as Max Le Verrier, also known by the pseudonym Artus was a famous French sculptor. He was known for being a pioneer within the Parisian Art Deco movement, creating decorative art objects often made in bronze as well as historical sculptures. Max le Verrier was born on the in Neuilly-sur-Seine, near Paris, in 1891. His mother was Belgian and his father was a Parisian goldsmith and jeweler on Boulevard Malesherbes in Paris. His parents divorced when he was 7 years old. Le Verrier attended several boarding schools (Collège de Verneuil sur Avre) and was a brilliant student. He grew an interest for drawing and art during his education. However, his father thought that his future would be in farming, therefore he sent Max to study agriculture (St. Sever and La Réole) against Ma’s wishes. However, Max Le Verrier kept his liking for sculpture during his spare time lively. At the age of 16, he returned to Paris and did odd jobs to escape farm-work and to provide for himself. (His father emancipated him, and, as a result, he was left to fend for himself). In 1909, when he was 18, he left for England. As a foreigner, it was very difficult for him to find a job in London; refusing to come back to France and admitting defeat, he lived very difficult days. From an early age he showed great promise as an artist and sculptor; and after serving in the French army during World War I, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva. During his studies in Switzerland he met fellow sculptors Pierre le Faguays and Marcel Bouraine, who became close friends and with whom he collaborated for much of his life. After completing his studies, le Verrier returned to France in 1919, and founded his own studio in Paris. It was at this time that he created his first popular sculpture, the famous 'Pelican' - which was the first of a long line of animal...
