Lovers of Art Deco sculpture and the Art Deco style will no doubt appreciate this one. It’s a unique life-size female nude bronze sculpture in the timeless 1920s Art Deco “Biba” Lady style.

We believe this Art Deco sculpture to have been made in the latter part of the 20th century, to a very high standard of craftsmanship. The bronze features a young lady dressed in typical Art Deco style and standing on a pedestal with fabric draped over her arms and holding a pair of jardinieres. Each of the jardinieres being decorated with three singing birds around the rim.

Quite apart from the considerable artistic merit of the bronze, this particular Bronze Art Deco sculpture is of particular note due to its size, making it suitable for display in the larger home or of course in a commercial setting such as a hotel, restaurant or perhaps a themed pub or bar.

This high quality hot cast solid bronze was made by using the well known and very traditional "lost wax" process, this method is otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.

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).

Satinwood

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.
