We kindly suggest that you read the entire description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects Beautiful Art Deco ceramic sculpture; it depicts a delicate, ethereal nude maiden lying, a soft veil encircles part of her body; the artifact was produced between 1925 and 1928 in France by the Faiencerie Saint-Clement in Lunévillois; the base bears the name of the artist who made it: Lemanceau. Charles Lemanceau was born in Paris in 1905 and died in Trebeurden in 1980. From 1923 he worked with the Saint-Clement pottery company in Lunevillois for which he produced many of his works with an aesthetic inspired by constructivism and cubism; in 1925 he participated in the "Salon d'Automne" with fellow artists including Raoul Dufy, Le Corbusier, Henri Matisse, Maurice Utrillo, and many others; in 1930 he worked for the French Sainte-Radegonde factory in Tours (Indre-et-Loire) founded in 1887 by Gustave Ash. Lemanceau specialized in sculptures of nudes and stylized animals; he was one of the French artists who best interpreted Art Deco. Saint-Clement was founded in 1758 by Jacques Chambrette of Luneville; the history of earthenware in the Lunévillois region thus dates back to the 18th century, and the objects that are still produced in and around Saint-Clément are the fruit of this long tradition. In 1892, the factories of Lunéville and Saint-Clément joined forces and dominated the French pottery market. Our sculpture, in addition to presenting the characters and engaging workmanship of white ceramics, has balanced and harmonious proportions, very well represented the body of the maiden, slender, full of an elegant and composed grace; overall a refined and elegant object that fits well in any room of the home. Measures width cm.54, depth cm.14, and height cm.32. The statue is in good condition.
