Art Deco Bronze by Germaine Oury*
Delightful Art Deco silvered bronze group of a female nude and a lamb. The young woman is seated on the ground, leaning back slightly, with her legs partially drawn up towards her, while turning her head towards a small lamb that has its front paws on her shoulder. She’s a very Deco lady with striking features and fantastic cropped, slicked back hair.
Beautifully sculpted by the French artist Germaine Oury (b. Valenciennes, 1889, also known as Germaine Oury-Cerf) ) and originally titled simply “Nu et Mouton”. This is a very early casting made for Etling of Paris and the superb quality that company demanded can be clearly seen.
Dating from around 1930 and raised on a rectangular bronze base which is further mounted on a variegated marble plinth.
Around 49 cm in length by 15 wide and approximately 32 cm high. Signed in the bronze and also marked Etling, Paris.
A strong Art Deco sculpture in good condition with just a few marks to the silvered patina.
