Sculpted and Cast Metal Panel by Michel Zadounaisky, 1933



A remarkable and rare sculpted and cast metal panel by Michel Zadounaisky, depicting a silver patinated shark surrounded with shoals of fish and abstract metalworks. The whole panel is framed in red steel and signed and dated within the scene 'Zadounaïsky 1933' The sculpture was purchased privately from Zadounaïsky's studio over 20 years ago by Ken.  Michel Zadounaïsky (1903-1983) was Russian born and French raised. He attended the Beaux-Arts de Lyon when he was 16, however he quit after a year and apprenticed with chandelier makers to learn the trade of blacksmithing.  It was during the 1920s, Zadounaïsky developed his style of curves and intricate lacework as well as his heavy interest in animals which can be seen in many of his works. He became an expressive voice of the French Art Deco scene due to his unique designs and superb craftsmanship, that the French elite commissioned him for works. The sculpture is in excellent condition and would need a substantial wall for hanging due to its weight.
