A French sculptor of lithe female figures, monuments, ceramics and figurative lamps working in Art Deco* style, Pierre Le Faguays captured public attention with his early exhibitions of exuberant dancing figures, inspired by the statues of Tanagra*, a community north of Athens known for mass produced terracotta* figurines. Le Faguays was a native of Nantes, France. He studied at the Paris Salon* and in Geneva, Switzerland, and was a member of the Salon, La Stele and Evolution groups. His mediums included ivory, wood, stone and bronze. In 1927, he was awarded the French Medal of Honor.
It is thought that he also used the pseudonym of Raymond Guerbe, which is reinforced by the similarities of subject matter and style.
