Ca. 1920-25, France
Bronze Art Deco sculpture of a dancer, made by Serge Zélikson.
The sculpture is signed on the base with Zélikson and the title "Danse" in the bronze. It stands on a veined marble base and has a green patina.
Serge Zélikson was originally from Belarus and moved to Paris in 1912 with a scholarship for l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He was pupil of Injalbert, Bouchard and Landowsky. In 1920 he became a Frenchman and changed his first name into Serge, instead of Sergey.
He worked as a sculptor, engraver and medallist in Art Deco style and exhibited in various Salons, such as the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Indépendants. He specialised in figures, including genre pieces, groups of figures, bas-reliefs and busts. His bust of Beethoven is very well known.
His son was the then very famous singer and movie star Armand Mestral.
