A STONE BUST OF A WOMAN BY IRENE CODREANO, 1927
Artist coming from Romania, she lived in Paris and met all the eastern artists based in Paris. Pupil of Antoine Bourdelle and Constantin Brancusi, she exhibited at the 'Salon des Tuileries' and was member of the 'Salon d'Automne'. A 'Portrait de Daria Gans', executed in bronze and dated 1926 is part of the collections of the 'Musée des Années Trente', in Boulogne, close to Paris. The model may have been the same woman. The head broken and restored.
