About

A short video clip of this piece may be provided upon request. About the Artist: Demétre Haralamb Chiparus (1886–1947) was a Romanian Art Deco era sculptor who lived and worked in Paris, France. He was without question one of the most important sculptors of the Art Deco era and his sculptures a reflection of the 1920 and 1930s. Coming from the oldest French tradition of high-quality and extra-artistic decorative arts, Chiparus's sculptures combine elegance and luxury, embodying the spirit of the Art Deco epoch. Collector interest in the work of Chiparus appeared in the 1970s and has flourished since the 1990s. A major collection of his work is on display in the permanent collection of Casa Lis, the Art Deco museum in Salamanca, Spain. Dimensions: H 53.5 cm (21.1") Base: 36 (14.2") x 18.1 cm (7.1")
