Henri Émile Martinet

(Last Updated On: February 7, 2017)

Here’s a lovely little Art Deco sculpture from Henri Émile Martinet. What I most love about this piece is the easy, unforced stance the little girl takes. There’s very little about Martinet on the web, but I do know he was a student of sculptor Charles Valton, and he became well-known in his lifetime for his sculptural portraits of early 20th century luminaries.

One thought on “Henri Émile Martinet

  1. A snippet from the catalogs … Sculpture in patinated plaster. 27 ½ in high but I’ll pass on paying to find out how much she sold for back in 2009.
