Original Art Deco Nude in Marble by Joe Descomps



This stunning all original statue made of pure white marble, shows so much grace, talent and sophistication. The Art Deco beauty is rendered by the hands of a master: Joe Descomps whose worked is extremely sought after, often imitated and copied. He is well known for Bronze statues and working with ivory as well. The nice thing about owning a real marble statue, there is only one, it is never a casted piece but done by the hand of the artist. Look at the gentle smile, the details of the back, feet and hand positions. Also she is wonderfully draped to cover her breast, all so neatly separated. I think I am in love (for real)! Completed around 1920. This is guaranteed original and she is fantastic. Joe Descomps (French, 1872-1948) was born in Clermont-Ferrand and studied under H. Hiolin. He exhibited often at the salon of the Societe des Artistes Francais and was elected a member in 1893. He designed a huge range of sculptures in the Art Nouveau to Art Deco style (circa 1880 to 1930). Art Nouveau could be said to be the first 20th-century modern style because it was the first style to stop looking backwards in history for ideas, taking inspiration instead from what it saw around it, in particular the natural world. Descomps concentrated in bronze and ivory figures.
