Rare Austrian Art Deco 'flapper Girl' Figure, By Josef Lorenzl, C.1930:
A Rare Austrian, Art Deco, Cold-Painted Spelter 'Flapper Girl' Figure on Alabaster,signed Josef Lorenzl, sculpted around 1930.
Josef Lorenzl was one of the most famous and prolific sculptors of the Art deco period.He produced figurative pieces in both bronze, spelter and porcelain, where he worked along side Stephan Dakon in the famous Austrian Goldscheider factory. His pieces depicted the style and elegance of the period, where his ladies with their slim elongated, almost boy-like features found fame throughout Europe and the world. His sense of oppulence and sexual liberation, reflected the revolution in society of the roaring nineteen-twenties and thirties!
This paticular piece is cast in cold-painted spelter, as a risque Flapper Girl, with varieing hues of gold,brown & red. It depicts a 1920's lady in full Flapper attire, striking quite a dynamic pose, revealing quite a lotfrom her scantilly clad dress. All quite daring for the time.Her original cold-painted finishis inexcellent condition, showing the subtle coloured high lights to the gilt-bronzed finish. She ismounted by her original thread and bolt fastening, to the square carved alabaster pedestal stand, that has the inscribed Lorenzl signature to the rear.
She stands an elegant 280mm's tall by 80mm's deep and 75mm's wide, and is quite weighty for her size!
