PAUL PHILIPPE (1870-1930) The Turbaned Dancer Bronze and ivory, 61cm high Signed and No.4067 Raised on a stepped base A French Art Deco sculptor who worked predominately in the bronze medium. He was a student of fellow artist Antonin Larroux (1859-1937) and both exhibited successfully at the Paris Salon. Philippe specialized in chryselephantine figurines that were iridescently painted and jewelled bronzes with carved ivory flesh on specially created onyx and marble bases. Images of woman depicted as dancers holding theatrical poses pervaded his work. As a commercial sculptor these were not one off works but Philippe excelled in ensuring fine quality and innovative subjects. He often worked with Rosenthal & Maeder and Preiss-Kassler foundries in Berlin to cast his work. The remarkable anatomical detail of the carved ivory faces and jewellery were enhanced by coloured tints as indicated on the dancers dress.
