Terracotta ‘Enslaved’ by Claude Mirval*

Item Description

Art Deco terracotta study of a young semi-nude woman, kneeling with her hands chained together, titled ‘Enslaved’.

An atmospheric sculpture, depicting the girl looking upwards and over her left shoulder, presumably in the direction of her captors.

Finished and cast in that slightly rough manner that some sculptors favour, except for her face which is smooth.

Signed in the terracotta but spelled Merval.  This incorrect spelling is not unusual since the artists often had their names inscribed by their assistants. 

Around 45.5 cm in length by 16 cm wide and in the region of 49 cm high.

Dating from circa 1925. The conditon is good, commensurate with age, showing one or two small marks which do not detract on display.
