Art Deco Bronze Sculptures & Figures...
Sculptures and bas reliefs with male or female figures were
widely incorporated into architecture in the Art Deco period
of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, and therefore many pieces in the
Renaissance Man collection
consist of panels or bronze medallions that echo the facades
of buildings from that era. The male and female figures are often
stylized and frieze-like, and sometimes they are set amidst Art
Deco skylines, complete with ziggurated skyscrapers and pointed
- Some were created by great masters of the period,
such as Karl Korschann and A. Ouline in France, and Rene Chambellan
and Donald De Lue in America.
- Some depict strong, stylized animals,
such as the two lions depicted by Ouline, or the flying geese
in a medal by Tait McKenzie.
- Some show the male or female figure
in calm repose (such as the New York Building Congress Medal
by Leo Friedlander), and others show the figure hard at work
or highly active (such as Donald De Lue's Creation medal).
