About

This fabulous French Art Deco patinated terracotta sculpture of a nude male athlete is signed Henri Bargas. This well executed sculpture has a patinated finish that resembles bronze and dates to the 1930s. The base of this composition was purposely created of a different color tone. Bargas exhibited at the Paris International Exhibition of 1925, credited with the beginning of the Art Deco style. His male figural pieces are characterized by a demonstration of athletic prowess in the heroic Greek manner.
