Lormier Veil Dancer*

Item Description

Stunning French Art Deco bronze veil dancer by Jean Lormier dating from around 1925-30, the peak of the Art Deco era.

This sculpture is visually very exciting, showing as it does the lithe young dancer putting everything she has into her performance.  A beautifully crafted piece by a master sculptor who really knew how to capture movement and posture.  She is seen crouching low, with her forward leg bent at the knee and the other extended behind her. Her back is arched as she spreads her arms upward while holding the ends of the striped veil. The joyous smile on her face just adds to the compelling atmosphere of the jazz age that this wonderful sculpture simply oozes.

With a rich brown patination, the skirt and veil cold-painted in shades of dark green and gold.  Set on a shaped onyx and marble base with an eye-catching and very Deco sunrise design to the front.  

Signed in the bronze J. Lormier. The total width is around 63.5 cm and the height just a touch over 46 cm. Depth of the base is 12.5 cm.
