St Clement Ceramic Pheasant by Lemanceau. In perfect condition, c1930. Lemanceau (1905-1980, France) is regarded for his vast array of animal sculptures. He painstakingly tried to preserve the various animals’ fluidity of motion and proportions while also reducing their inherent complexity to something more in line with what other Art Deco ceramics were trying to accomplish. His medium of choice was crackle-glazed ceramic, which enhanced their texturing and overall aesthetic appeal. Some of the sculptures were made with conventional whites and creamy tones, while others, like this pheasant, in radiant viridian green.
