Important 1920s ceramic by Celine LePage titled "La Femme de Marrakech." This work is an original piece and in excellent condition. The under-base has the original seal and label. It is signed with the artist's impressed initials "CL" on one side of the base. This magnificent Art Deco piece stands 29" tall; the base is 8" x 8."
There is a small old newspaper clipping attached to the piece. The translation is "Céline LePage, sculptor, born in 1882 in Varsovie; died in Paris in 1928. She did sculpture and bas-relief for the Pamone Pavillion at the International Exposition of decorative arts in Paris, December 1925."
Lepage (1882-1928) was a part of an artist group formed by Arthur Goldscheider. This is arguably the most famous of her works. Being ceramic, very few original pieces have survived.
