Pierre Le Faguays - An Art Deco bronze sculpture France circa
1925, entitled "Shy", the young woman dancing with a drape
held to her body, the bronze cold-painted silver with enamel
details and mounted on a shaped portoro marble base.
This uncommon and beautiful sculpture was edited by Etling,
Paris and is very fine quality.
Pierre Le Faguays
Born in Nantes; pupil of Vibert. He attracted the attention of the
public at his first exhibition due to the originality he gave his
dancing subjects which were inspired by the statues of Tangara. He
was a member of the salon of La Stele and Evolution groups and
also worked closely with Max le Verrier. He received a medal of
honour in 1927.
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.
