About the Object

Sculptor Elie Nadelman drew inspiration from the classical forms of ancient Greece, yet his work suggests  contemporary influences as well.  The  streamlined and chiseled  facial features of Head of a Woman and the subtle band at the woman's hairline are timeless elements, yet they suggest an aesthetic closely associated with the Art Deco movement.
