gorgeous art deco statue of a hunter with spear

on a beautiful  black  marble base

white metal,

with a splendid bronze patina !

ca 1930

signed  Jean 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.

 

VERY BIG ONE :

marble 75 cm x 18 cm  x 6 cm

height 55 cm

statue of the hunter 90 cm !!

very good condition

small signs of  use and age
