'The Release' Art Deco Sculpture by Alexander Kéléty

$12,244.11

About

A striking Art Deco bronze of four hounds straining at their leashes and being held back by their male keeper. The figures are set on a bronze sôcle and then mounted on a black marble plinth. Signed KELETY in the bronze. French, circa 1930. Born in Budapest, Kéléty was a disciple of fellow Hungarian artist and sculptor Imre Simay. Better known for his animalier sculptures, Kéléty’s most recognisable works featured both figures and creatures together, a comment on the coexistence of the human and animal worlds, as perfectly illustrated here.
