Bonne oeuvre d'art, Erte
Erte was raised by the socially elite in Russia during the pre-communist era. He became enamored of Persian sculpture and carried this impression with him when he moved to Paris in 1910. His unique artistic style won the favor of a wide audience in the 1920's and has stood the test of several generations. This 18 inch high work is entitled Amazon, and is yours for $9,500.
For me, at least, this artist paints a haunting portrayal of feminine physique. Dunno why, but I stare a these for quite a while. And, in several weeks I'll go back and look at them again. Be sure to select "detail" at the gallery site.
