Demetre Chiparus (Romanian 1886-1947) Etling Paris Foundry

Published September 13th, 2016 by Unknown

Yesterday we had the pleasure of curating this spectacular cold painted Art Deco bronze attributed to Demetre Chiparus with a Edmond Etling & Cie Paris Foundry mark. This piece was acquired from the estate of a prominent fine art dealer in Miami, Florida, along with an array of other fine art to be featured in our October Sale.

Chiparus produced some of his Art Deco figures in plasteline. He then sold the reproduction rights to prestigious Parisian workshops & foundries such as Edmond Etling & Cie, and Les Neveux de J. Lehmann.

These high quality workshops and foundries then produced multiples of these figures, which feature very high quality castings demonstrating the great detail in the costumes and truly recreate the life and movement in Chiparus figures.

DESCRIPTION: A cold painted Art Deco bronze sculpture attributed to Demetre Chiparus from the Edmond Etling & Cie foundry in Paris. Features two beautiful dancers embellished with cold painted gilded and emerald green accents along the bottoms of their dresses, along with burgundy red along the top. Incredibly detailed as seen on the hands and faces of the dancers, and mounted on an Art Deco style onyx and marble base. Signed:”D.H. Chiparus” along with a Edmond Etling & Cie foundry mark along the back.
