Sabino, M.E. (1878-1961)

An opalescent glass sculpture by Marius Ernest Sabino “Danseuse drapée”. The American dancer Isadora Duncan might have been the inspiration for this Art Deco sculpture.

This original statue was designed and made in the late 1920’s in his factory in Noisy-le-Sec near Paris. Ofcourse, the great master in opalescent and pressed glass is René Lalique (1860-1945), but there is only a great similarity with those two glass artists in the technique they used. But both Sabino as Lalique, had their own, very recognizable, form language.
