The Wheat sheaf Girl
A stunning Art Deco terracotta figure of the Wheatsheaf Girl, modelled as a semi-nude reclining female amidst sheaves of wheat, raised on ebonised wood rectangular base, signed 'D.H. Chiparus' to the reverse of the terracotta.

Demetre Chiparus, for most of his life and career, he lived and worked in the French capital city of Paris. A mecca for art and artists in the early 1900’s and in the post-war roaring decandence of the twenties. His sculptures are characterised by exquisite modelling of the female form, combining highly decorative and elaborate details with stunning touches of Art Deco style. His slender lithe, long legged and very life like figures, with sensual and glamorously decorated outfits inspired by the artists and dancers from Parisienne theatres, the Folies Bergere, and Russian ballet troupes.
