D.H. Chiparus Cleopatra*

Item Description

Classic Art Deco silvered bronze sculpture of a reclining Cleopatra by Demetre Chiparus.

Dressed from head to foot in ornate if somewhat skimpy finery, she’s laying on one hip with her upper body slightly raised as she supports herself on one arm.  Her other arm is bent above her head in a classically sensual pose.

This is a truly fine piece with superb detail to every aspect, even extending to the richly patterned weave of her ornate day-bed.

Dating from circa 1925, signed D.H. Chiparus in the bronze and simply mounted on a verde antico marble base.

The height is just a touch below 24 cm to the top of her elbow, width a little under 40 and depth around 11.5 cm. 

There is a another somewhat similar example also by Chiparus depicting a slightly different pose, but this is the more elegant and pleasing version.
