Art deco and other figures

£14.99

Product description

Based partly on the original importers' catalogues and partly on the wide range of pieces handled by the author Bryan Catley, a leading specialist in the subject, this book covers a comprehensive range of art deco figures. Between the wars, an entirely "modern" style of decorative sculpture emerged which was a complete break with the heavy romantic late 19th century schools, and was totally in sympathy with the vibrant young society of the 1920s. The use of bronze and ivory for the great number of these sensual figures in no way obscures the fact that many are of exceptionally high quality; add to this their sense of movement and rhythm and one realises that the large sums they now command is a reflection of a discriminative international collectors' market. This new revised edition provides a comprehensive listing of the great variety and range of figures, of which there are still more to be found.

Dedication to previous owner on inside page.
