French Art Deco Ceramic Nude Sculpture

Item #2349 SOLD

This beautiful French art deco sculpture in white ceramic craquelure  (crackle finish)  is a classic nude, in a natural  languid pose .  Although unsigned it does bear a stamping showing that it was  made in France and our best “educated guess” is that it is the work of Charles Lemanceau who did many nudes of this type and  many stylized animals in high “deco” interpretation always using the craquele technique.   It also bears the influence of more ancient Greek sculptures but is decidedly French from the early 1920s.

 

The features are so well rendered and this sculpture looks as good when viewed from the back as the front. Consider using it on a formal  dining table as a centerpiece to appreciate it from every side.
