Symbolistic Art Deco Sculpture, 1920s


Beautiful organic female figure with mysterious symbolic facial expression by Cris Agterberg. The sculpture is 51 cm high. The dimensions of the basement are 13 x 10,5. The object is signed Cris Agterberg (incised). The object has typically slender and stylised forms in a combined symbolistic and expressionistic style similar to the Amsterdam School. Cris Agterberg (1883-1948) was a Dutch designer and maker of applied art (including ceramics) besides sculptor and painter. He designed for Glasfabriek Leerdam and Pottery Schoonhoven. Although he was famous for his decorative designs, he thought of himself as a sculptor in the first place. His work is very popular among collectors because of the high quality of his workmanship.
