Pierre Le Faguays (french sculptor, 1892-1935)

Pierre Le Faguays, Fayral, was a prolific déco and versatile avant-garde French sculptor, whose works greatly influenced the styles of the 1920's and early 1930's.
His dancing girls are delicate creatures and have lovely, sensitive faces -in bronze and tinted ivory, equal to those of the better known specialists Chiparus🎨, Preiss, Icart🎨 and Lorenzl.
Le Faguays was born in Nantes, France and became famous for the originality he gave his dancers, many of which were inspired by the statues of Tanagra. He gained a medal of honor for his work in 1927. He was a best friend of Max Le Verrier and the Le Verrier foundry made most of - if not all of his pieces. Fayral really caught the beauty and elegance of the female form with great talent.
