Demetre Chiparus

It’s only indirectly that Demetre Chiparus (or Dumitru Chipăruş) (1886 – 1947) belongs in this blog. An Art Deco sculptor of Romanian origin (and therefore outside the Russian/Soviet domains), he was much inspired by the Ballets Russes of Serge Diaghilev. I saw a few of his pieces displayed at the St Petersburg Gallery in Mayfair the other day, and managed to take a few pictures.
