Friends Forever

Bronze
The etched signature "D.H. Chiparus" is found on the base and the foundry stamp "L.N/Paris/J.L." is found on the woman's skirt.

This endearing group is the work of famed Art Deco sculptor D. H. Chiparus. Entitled Friends Forever, this charming figure of a young girl and her two borzoi, or Russian wolfhound companions, is comprised of patinated, cold-painted bronze in a style known as chryselephantine. Graceful, well-balanced, fashion-forward yet familiar, this engaging piece is set upon a striking onyx plinth.

Demetre Haralamb Chiparus (1886-1947) was Romanian by birth. He studied in Italy and France, where he studied under Mercié and J. Boucher at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. He exhibited at the Salon from 1914 to 1928, and found great success with his sculptures of dancers from the Ballet Russes and the French theatre. Depicted wearing exotic costumes and striking dramatic poses, Chiparus' figures captured the lively and sensuous spirit of the time.
