Beautiful stone sculpture of a young woman, made in the stylized style of the 1920's.
The influence of architecture in the work of Callie is very visible in this piece, the long and narrow form he used, it's like he wants to honour the woman by putting her on a high pedestal.
The sculpture is underneath signed and dated with "Callie, 1928".
Bernard Callie (Brussels,1880-1954), was educated at the Brussels Academy.
He made several journeys to Paris, London, Amsterdam and Vienna and stayed during WWI in Switzerland.
During his life he always exhibited his work on several Salons, several museums bought his work for their collections. His style is poetic and decorative and always connected in a way with architecture. He worked together with the architects Michel Polak and Fernand Petit.
He worked with the materials stone and ceramics.
