You are viewing a gorgeous French silvered bronze art deco statue by the French sculptor Joe Descamps (1869 - 1950). This piece is named 'Beauty of Paris' - it has also been referred to as 'Cape Girl'. I hope the photos go some way in conveying the beauty to this piece, it's certainly better in the flesh. The casting is of the highest quality and this original work of art would surely be the talking point of any interiors scheme. This is a later recasting from the original and it is based in the US where we will ship from, good news for US buyers.
The piece shows a nude female kneeling with a flower encrusted drape over her shoulder. Her hair is pulled back tightly in typical 1920s style. Descomps has really caught the beauty and form to the female with amazing style, her figure somehow emobodies the art deco aesthetic with her beauty and aerodynamism. I have included a close up photo of the artists signature which is on the base of the shadow. There is also a close up photo of the foundry mark on the other side, marked 'R.Patrouillfa..Edit_Paris'.
The piece is solid and heavy and sits squarely on a black marble base. Hopefully the photos convey the quality of the piece. She is offered in perfect condition ready for home use right away. We bought her from a dealer in Les Halles, Paris whilst on a recent French buying trip. This is based in the US were we have an outlet so we would ship from North America - good news for our American friends but we will of course ship to Europe and the rest of the world.
