D. H. Chiparus "L'age Du Bronze" Bending Bar Man, Large Size

About

“L’Age du Bronze” sculpture by Demetre Chiparus, a powerful French spelter statue is sometimes referred to as the famous ” bending bar man” It was made in two sizes and this one, much more rare, is the larger size of 34 ” X 6.5? D X 21? T, the smaller one is about 1/2 the size as the one offered here. The detail in the sculpture is of the finest quality. The base is made of beautiful black, white marble and signed D.H.Chiparus, there is a small area on the back edge with some hardly noticeable edge chips, in the 13th picture. The condition of this powerful statue is excellent. The original patina on is amazing with color that is very intense. This is a very rare find in this size and Chiparus pieces continue to climb in value as his work is featured at every major auction house throughout the world, such as Christie’s, Bonham’s and Sotheby’s. “L’Age du Bronze” as pictured here is one of the few male sculptures he produced and is featured in the book Chiparus – Master of Art Deco by Alberto Shayo page 65.
