Dancer with hoop by Chiparus

Dancer with hoop

(private collection Atelier)

by Chiparus


What a magnificent Art Deco Bronze Dancer, mounted on a marble base! It is very enjoyable to observe the artistic talent of this young Hula- Ring Dancer! The ring between her hands and her left foot shows the outstanding acting ability of the young dancer in addition to that, the dress of the "Dancer with Ring" is impressive and well manufactured. The fantastic bronze art object is standing on a round marble base and was designed by the famous Chiparus in perfect detail and made of finest bronze-cast in museum quality. In comparison with the original, this object is as filigree as possible. The sculpture is an eye-catcher in every exhibition or can be used for collectors purposes.

The artist Chiparus signed the sculpture on the footprint position.
Demetre Haralamb Chiparus was born in Dorohoi, Romania on September 16, 1886. As an extraordinary artist he lived his life in high esteem. The name Haralamb was the name of his father which he adopted to keep him in loving memory.

It was 1909 when D. H. Chiparus decided to travel and study in Florence. In 1912 he moved to Paris where he studied under Boucher and Mercier. Since 1914 he exhibited his artwork at the Salon in Paris. His beautiful artwork was influenced by the French theatre, his interest in Egyptian culture and Russian Dancers and the Russian ballet. Almost all his sculptures are images of this different influences and interests of D. H. Chiparus who died on January 22, 1947.

Thank you for watching.
