art deco figure of a hunter Chiparus

 

 

 

 

Gorgeous art deco statue of a hunter with spear

on a beautiful  brown  marble base

bronze patinated white metal / spelter (  = zamak )

ca 1930

signed by  J. de Roncourt,

probably a pseudonym of DM Chiparus

 

There is a bit of controversy and mystery surrounding De Roncourtís work. Biographical information seems lacking, and the fact that not only this sculpture but that of his most famous work,  can sometimes be found signed with the name D. Chiparus has led many to believe that De Roncourt may have been a pseudonym for the amazingly prolific artist Demetre Chiparus.
