Art Deco lovers take note, here is a recast of an original Art Deco bronze statue by celebrated French sculptor Chiparus. This is a beautiful bronze sculpture of an elegantly dressed 'flapper' girl in the Art Deco manner from the last quarter of the 20th century, the original being attributed to Chiparus.
This is a high quality recast of the artist’s original and bears the replica signature of DH Chiparus. Demetre Chiparus, (1886 - 1947), was a major force within the Art Deco period and was especially well-known for his bronze figurines, often depicting dancers in bronze. Chiparus was a Romanian by birth but normally worked in Paris. He is particularly well known for his bronze dancers other theatrical subjects and made a point of emphasising not just their poses but also paying great attention to their costumes.
Art Deco bronze lovers will notice the exquisite level of detail throughout the piece which is mounted upon an attractive marble base. If you look at the photographs closely you will notice the Chiparus signature on the base of the figure.
This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process which is favoured because of its ability to preserve a high level of detail. This lovely bronze flapper girl commands attention and delight all who look at her.
We are very pleased to offer this bronze flapper girl statue in excellent condition. Please see the photos to satisfy yourself of this.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).

It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
