Full Description
Roland Paris is one of the most recognisable artists of the Art Deco world, yet his work remains something of an enigma. His art is caricature-like, bordering on grotesque, and he delivers critical perspectives on society’s downtrodden via jesters and devils. His mediums range from sculpture and painting to porcelain and wood, including woodcuts and the written word. This never-before-seen study focuses on the artist’s trials and tribulations while living in Nazi-ruled Germany, and the tragic end to his life, hours before the end of World War Two. Also available by Alberto Shayo: Chiparus: Master of Art Deco ISBN 9781851498222, Statuettes of the Art Deco Period ISBN 9781851498246.
