Pierre Laurel Art Deco Girl*
Striking Art Deco spelter sculpture signed beneath the base Pierre Laurel, a pseudonym used from time to time by Pierre Le Faguays.
Patinated in a shade of dark olive green, the nude young lady is modelled in a seated position, looking downwards with her arms raised and legs extended, as if she is about to launch herself from this position into a pool below.
This is a sculpture we’ve not come across before and the pose is eye-catchingly individual.
Dating from the early 1930’s and set on a two piece Macassar Ebony base which balances the piece perfectly.
One or two quite usual minor marks to the patina but otherwise in excellent condition.
The overall height is 42 cm and the width aproximately 29 cm.
