Demétre Chiparus Sculpture 'Victory' Tall Athletic Statue

About

Demétre Chiparus ‘Victory’ Art Deco sculpture. Original pristine condition of petite bronze (white metal) in verdigris patina with gold accent details as well. Chiparus, the most famous Art Deco sculptor for many things, especially the male athletic figure. Original portoro marble base with signature Chiparus. The pieces are highly sought after, many published in books on Art Deco statues. Most important, the Chiparus Book by Alberto Shayo. Demetre H. Chiparus was born in Romania in 1886 and then traveled to Paris before World War I to become more involved with his artwork. He attended school in Italy and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and he exhibited at the Salon in 1914. Chiparus was particularly adept in the technique of chryselephantine, the combination of bronze and ivory to produce dramatic, stylized sculpture. He produced most of his renowned works between 1914 and 1933. Paris was an exciting place in the years leading up to World War II, when art deco style and swinging good times were in vogue just as in the United States. His later works in the 1920's were influenced by his interest in Egypt, after the excavation of the Pharoah Tutankhmen’s tomb. Some of his most exciting works are dancers taken from the Russian Ballet, French theatre, and early motion pictures. Dancers were captured in movement, dressed in high Art Deco style and long and lean in appearance.
