Demétre Chiparus - Delhi Dancer, an Art Deco bronze sculpture
France circa 1925, the bronze dancer mounted on a
substantial brown marble base with an illuminated honey onyx panel
behind her, gold cold-painted with enamel details.
This is a rare lamp with the bronze (also in bronze and ivory)
figure usually seen mounted on a plinth.
Demétre Chiparus (1886 - 1947)
Born in Dorohoi, Romania, Chiparus left Romania 1909 and went to
Italy, where he attended the classes of Italian sculptor Raffaello
Romanelli. In 1912 he traveled to Paris to attend the École des
Beaux Arts and studied under Antonin Mercié and Jean Boucher,
exhibiting at the Salon from 1914. His works in the 1920s were
heavily influenced by the excavation of the tombs in Egypt and the
Ballet Russe. He worked in bronze, ivory, ceramic and spelter and
he is now considered one of the most important (and well known) of
the sculptors associated with the Art Deco era.
