Demetre Chiparus Cleopatra Art Deco Bronze Sculpture


Art Deco Bronze ‘ Cleopatra ‘ by Demetre Chiparus circa 1925 is an extremely important and rare quality statue by the artist who was arguably the master of Art Deco figurative sculpture. Chiparus’s work is in many museums and major collections .Referenced in almost all books on Art Deco statues and Art Deco furnishings, this is certainly the finest signed piece we have ever offered of this important artist’s work. Amazing details in both dimension and color: the skirt with dimensional scales, scarabs around the belt, necklaces, detailing on the sandals, feet, and headdress, in both bronze and brass colors. Amazing foundry work and the quality of the metalwork execution. Cleopatra is shown sitting in the reclined position with additional detailing on the pillow and bed. This outstanding piece is double mounted on marble, with beveled sculpted edges, signed D H Chiparus in the bronze but also marked on the plate: CLEOPATRE par D.H. Chiaparus Laureate du Salon des Beaux-Arts. Demétre Haralamb Chiparus (16 September 1886–22 January 1947) was a Romanian Art Deco era sculptor who lived and worked in Paris, France. He was one of the most important sculptors of the Art Deco era. Minor repair in back corner of marble.
