Pierre Le Faguays
A French sculptor and painter of lithe female figures, monuments, ceramics and figurative lamps working in Art Deco* style, Pierre Le Faguays captured public attention with his early exhibitions of exuberant dancing figures, inspired by the statues of Tanagra, a community north of Athens known for mass produced terracotta* figurines.
His mediums included oil paintiing, sculptures in ivory, wood, stone and bronze.
In 1927, he was awarded the French Medal of Honor.
