Statue luminaire représentant Louise Brooks
This art deco sculpture is said to represent Louise Brooks. I have my doubts. At best, it is an approximate look alike. This piece, which looks like bronze but is described as plaster, is for sale on eBay. The seller lives in France.
Does anyone know anything about this piece? Or the artist? I would be interested to find out more.
On it's eBay page, there is a photo of the base of the sculpture which shows the artist's signature. I can't quite make it out.
