Hoop Dancer Bronze Sculpture After Preiss
For weekly notifications of new arrivals in your categories of interest please click HERE.
Preiss, (1882 - 1943), was active as a producer of bronze Art Deco and other pieces throughout the years in which Art Deco became a major force to be reckoned with and his work is, to this day, sought after and much admired.
It goes without saying therefore that Art Deco lovers will find this piece to be of particular interest both for its subject matter - a delightful Art Deco dancer is a typical pose with a hoop - and for its origin.
Although not a large piece, this lovely bronze makes up for its small size with an abundance of high quality workmanship. Modelling to the dancer’s face and body is especially fine and detailed and shows a mastery of the human form on the part of the sculptor. The base of the statue carries the replica signature of Preiss.
Offered for sale in excellent condition - something that we would ask you to confirm for yourself by studying the accompanying photographs - this is a piece of Art Deco bronze work that we expect to generate considerable interest.

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).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
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.
