The Beauty of Art Nouveau22

(0 votes)

Demétre Haralamb Chiparus (1886-1947) was a Romanian Art Deco era sculptor who lived and worked in Paris, France. Chiparus is remembered as one of the most important artists of the Art Deco era. He employed the combination of bronze and ivory, called chryselephantine, to great effect. His sculptures are remarkable for their bright and outstanding decorative effect.
The sculptures of Chiparus reflect his time and 1920-1930s sentiment of “folle”. Coming from the oldest French tradition of high-quality and extra-artistic decorative arts, the sculptures of Demétre Chiparus combine elegance and luxury, embodying the spirit of the Art Deco epoch.
The sculptor Demétre Chiparus, specialized in the dancer figurines is considered one of the brightest representatives of Art Deco, who worked in the style of chryselephantine technique. Chiparus paid special attention to the transfer of the texture of exotic costumes. Diaghilev's Russian ballet, which had a huge impact on the artistic community of Europe, was a special love and source of inspiration for Chiparus.
Chiparus works were not one-offs: he would make numerous copies through trusted foundries, including Etling et Cie in Paris, and oversee their quality. It is the personal attention to detail and quality of materials for which Chiparus has become revered. The cold-painting of the bronze in enamel paint, the fine workmanship of the ivory carving and the luxuriant use of hardstones such as onyx and marble by Chiparus sets their pieces above other sculptors of the period and have led to their continued popularity among collectors
