Art Trivia #15

Postby Erika Takacs » Sun May 06, 2007 9:29 pm

Art Deco artist, mostly interested in the elegance and grace of the female body. Russian ballerinas and Egyptian themes were his main inspiration. Although one of his works almost hit the one million mark recently on Sotheby's, his name is not well known (yet).

Name the artist. Erika

Elizabeth, it's not him. This sculptor was born in Eastern Europe, based in Paris. Hope that helps!Erika

Nope. He was a Romanian sculptor. This should help. Good luck! Erika
