About

The figurative sculpture "Clarté" is the most important work of Max Le Verrier. The nearly life-size floor lamp shows a nude lady holding a lighted glass ball. Famous, very decorative Art Deco Style object. Designed in France during the roaring 1920s by “Max Le Verrier” (1891-1973) Original Max Le Verrier, signed Art Deco Style, France Lighted sculpture made in Bronze Dimensions: Width 91 cm Height 170 cm (with glass ball) Height 145 cm (without glass ball) Diameter base: 45 cm Diameter glass ball: 30 cm Weight: ca. 60 kg The story behind: In 1928, Max Le Verrier designed after a live model, the famous CLARTÉ, a woman with a illuminated ball - the main piece of his artistic work. In fact, he needed three different models: one for the head, one for the upper part of the body and one for the legs. For this last part he asked an African-American dancer who played in the shows of Josephine BAKER. The work picks up the theme of the female nude in a very aesthetic way and at the same time symbolize the time of the Art Deco with its typical hairstyle and simplicity in their line. This decorative, illuminated figure is available in 4 sizes: a nearly life-size bronze in 1.70 meters one version with 85 cm, as well as 2 smaller versions in 65 cm (Lumina) and 38 cm (LUEUR LUMINEUSE).
