Preiss (born in Germany 1882) was a famous sculpturist in the 1920s who studied in Paris and worked in Berlin with Poertzel. He was famed for his classic deco studies of the female form and this is one of his most famous works. This is a later recasting from the original. It’s a classic art deco piece and the proportions to the female and the quality to the casting are amazing. This really would be the centre piece to any collection.
