Sculptor: Demetre H. Chiparus
Demetre H. Chiparus was born in Romania and then traveled to Paris before World War I to become more involved with his artwork. He exhibited at the Salon in 1914. He produced most of his renowned works between 1914 and 1933. His later works in the 1920s were influenced by his interest in Egypt, after the excavation of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen’s tomb. Some of his most exciting works are dancers taken from the Russian Ballet, French theatre, and early motion pictures.
