Great charcoal nude drawing of two women by well listed French (Bordeaux) Georges de Sonneville (1889-1970) drawn c. 1935 Art Deco signed, dated and stamped by his estate. This is a great charcoal nude study of form and movement, which has been double matted and is ready to be framed and hung. Mr. Sonneville contributed extensively to art in France and his various works hang in many museums and galleries. He was also a great French patriot who served on several art boards, musuems etc. There is a website which features his works and is available upon request. The etching is signed and bears his estate seal. Superb piece mattted and ready to be framed.
CONDITION: The condition is excellent. There is no damage, repairs, foxing, mold, mildew or discoloration. There is a tiny indent where another frame sat up against it, but can be removed easily and as it is does not distract in any way.
SIZE: The overall size incuding matte is 18 inches high x 14 inches wide. The etching is 8 1/2 inches high x 12 1/2 inches wide.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
