Item Description

A renowned sculptor from the 1920s onwards, Leon Leyritz (1888-1976) was also close to the world of music, including friendship with Maurice Ravel for whom he realised a portrait bust, in addition to the interior decoration of his Paris apartment. Leyritz also undertook the stage design of numerous theatrical productions, especially those for Marcel Achard, where his sculptures were displayed alongside furnishings by Eugene Printz. This important piece, created by Leon Leyritz in 1963 at the age of 75, is made in lead with a steel frame.
