Marcel-Andre Bouraine - Fan Dancer and Art Deco bronze
sculpture France circa 1925 the young woman dancing with
fan held over her head, the bronze cold-painted and patinated
mounted on a portoro marble base.
This sculpture was originally edited by Etling, Paris.
Born in Pontoise (Seine-et Oise), he studied under
Jean-Alexndre-Joseph Falguiere (1881 - 1900), who had reintroduced
and emphasized realism in nineteenth-century sculpture. Bouraine
was captured in Germany during the First World War, and interned
in Switzerland. In 1922, he exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries.
The following year he began to exhibit at the Salon d'Autommne. He
executed small-scale sculptures for several French firms,
including Susse Freres, Max Le Verrier and Austria's Arthur
Goldscheider, often exhibiting with the latter's La Stele and
L'Evolution groups. In 1928 Gabriell Argy-rousseau (1885- 1953)
commissioned a number of figurines from Bouraine, mostly female
nudes, but also a fountain and an illuminated group, all of which
were executed in colored, translucent pate de verre. He also
executed two major commissions for the 1937 Paris International
La Societe Anonyme Edmond Etling was founded after the First
World War in Paris. Edmund Etling was a retailer who commissioned
art works in bronze, ceramics, and glass (mostly from French
artists). The glass pieces were usually made at the Choisy-le-Roi
glass works. Their entire output was produced during the Art Deco
period because the company did not survive the second world war.
