Picaud Folies Bergère Plaque*

Item Description

Rare silvered gesso/plaster copy of the stone plaque that is centrally mounted above the entrance on the facade of the famous Folies Bergère in Paris.

Designed and created by the French artist Maurice Picaud (also Pico or Picot), the original was installed in the mid 1920’s.

Depicting the popular dancer of the times Lila Nikolska, this is a stunning piece of Art Deco design.  She is posing nude in mid dance in front of a series of abstract Deco swirls and shapes, perfectly capturing the atmosphere of the perfomances that took place inside each night.

It is thought that at the most a few hundred of these were produced and at the time were either given or sold to assorted VIP’s and other favoured patrons of the Folies Bergère.

We have had the panel framed in a deep, recessed black frame which measures 55.5 cm high, 53.5 wide and just over 5 cm deep.  The panel itself is  approximately 50 X 48 cm.

Ref: 12880
