Monograph covering the work of Demetre Chiparus as both sculptor and painter.
Over 23 years ago the first publication of 'Chiparus: Master of Art Deco' brought this artist into the public eye. His name, lost in records and catalogues, was rejuvenated by Alberto Shayo's rediscovery of his works, effectively bringing artist and oeuvre back to life. This book dwells on the sources and inspiration of the Art Deco movement, with particular emphasis on sculptures created by Demetre Chiparus. However, Chiparus considered himself a painter above a sculptor. In this latest version of the book, many unpublished pictures come to light as well as newly discovered oils and 'sanguines', confirming his aptitude in both fields.

Mr Shayo is the author of 'Camille Faure: Limoges Art Deco Enamels - The Geometry of Joy', published by Antique Collectors' Club. 300 colour
