"Greek with Shell," Fabulous Panel with Half-Nude Figure by Art Deco Master



Created by Paul Mergier, one of France's great metalworkers and enamelists in the Art Deco period -- with an especially strong reputation for dinanderie or mixed-metal work -- this enamel and copper panel dates from the 1950s, and shows the influence of both Art Deco and Mid Century styles. Like many of his contemporaries, Mergier was influenced by Classical and African art, and this piece from the 1950s -- with its Greek figure blowing a horn made from a seashell -- continues to show that influence. The reopened Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris includes a suite of furniture commissioned by Jacques Ducet and executed by Mergier along with Pierre Legrain and Marcel Coard in the 1920s. This piece is signed and dated, and retains its original frame.
