Sokolnicki bronze art deco mask.

A stunning and important art deco bronze sculpture by Nicolas de Sokolnicki.
Signed in the bronze.
Probably edited by Siot Decauville. (Sokolnicki exhibited his sculpture in Siot Decauville gallery).
Wonderful green patina.
Circa 1930. French.
Mask is 20cm x 17cm x 10cm

When I bought the mask I had no information on Sokolnicki and I must admit it was not easy to find something as no sculpture were registered in auctions data websites.
Finally I can found that this artist did very few sculptures but they were always given great interest by press and institutions in France in the 1920's and 1930's.
French administration bought 8 of his bronzes.
One of his sculpture was displayed at the entrance of Salon des Tuileries in Paris in 1923. (I can provide full texte of Article in "Le Gaulois").
An finally Sokolnicki exhibited in Siot Decauville gallery and over all in 1930 "Salon des artistes" in Paris.

Rare find for this true period art deco piece.
