Demetre Chiparus - An Art Deco gilt bronze sculpture of the
Madonna and Child circa 1925, mounted on a stepped black marble
Demetre Chiparus is now acknowledged as one of the major sculptors
of bronze and ivory statues in the Art Deco style.
This is an extremely rare and beautiful figure, a model we have
not seen before and one that is not included in the book Chiparus;
Master of Art Deco by Alberto Shayo.
The stylised drapes of the clothing as they fall to her feet and
the way they surround her face are so typical of the Art Deco
period. The work of a master sculptor, it can be viewed from any
angle, each revealing its beauty and serenely commanding presence,
the back view reminiscent of the forms of Constantin Brancusi, the
front and side views having the streamlined elegance of the Art
Deco movement. The finish is original with a warm richness to it
and in very good condition, just showing slight signs of wear in
places, that if anything, add to the overall beauty.
