Art Deco Statue Seduction by Fayral for LeVerrier

About

Original Max Leverrier edition of Pierre Le Faguays famous sculpture “Seduction”. Original patina in excellent condition. Fayral signature (Pseudonym of Pierre Le Faguays), circa 1930s. The emblematic Art Deco image of the woman and the gazelle appears throughout the Art Deco period. This original interpretation offers an artistic view revealing a rarely seen perspective. My question is always, “who is seducing who”? Green-patinated white bronze, a special Art Metal used by Le Verrier, that give his sculptures the weight and feel of bronze and superior casting quality. Black Belgian marble base. Pierre Le Faguays was born in Nantes, France and became famous for the originality he gave his dancers, many of which were inspired by the statues of Tanagra. He gained a medal of honor for his work in 1927. He was a best friend of Max Le Verrier and the Le Verrier foundry produced many of his pieces. He used 2 pseudonyms as well as his own name and they were Fayral and Guerbe. Which were the family names of his mother and his wife. He was a leading sculptor and his work is frequently praised for its high quality and attention to anatomical accuracy. He also produced designs for Goldscheider in Paris under the “La Stele” label. He worked in several mediums including ivory, bronze, spelter, stone, wood, alabaster and ceramics. He studied with his friend Max Le Verrier. He was a good friend of both Marcel Bouraine and Max Le Verrier and indeed the Le Verrier foundry produced many of the Le Faguays statues. All three had studied together at the Beaux-Arts in Geneva and remained life-long friends.
