Spectacular Art Deco Diana Huntress and Leaping Antelope by De Marco
Item #1571 SOLD
Presented here is one of the finest sculptures we have had to date. It is the epitomy of great Art Deco design, showing all the signs of a classic, both in style, quality and presence. This is Diana the Huntress, a theme often repeated in Art Deco folklore. What makes this piece so spectacular : It has the style, the size and all the elements. The quality is of the best metal with special green patina, very heavy and well made.The movement of the pieces shows elegance and substance . Diana is in a wonderful pose, one leg extended and holding a most fluid shaped bow. She appears to be effortlessly aiming her arrow at the leaping and graceful Antelope.
The designer is Jean De marco, and the piece was made at the foundry of Max Le Verrier, creator of the epic sculptures most associated with the great Art Deco period in France. Le Verrier’s foundry produced not only his own work, but that of several famed Deco Sculptors including Le Faguays ( who also used the names Fayral and Guerbe) and Bouraine and Janle. The base bears the signature of the artist “De marco” .
