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.
