A short biography of the artist: " Max Le Verrier was a French sculptor best known for his elegant figurines and lamps. Whether depicting dancers or panthers, Le Verrier crafted his pieces in the Art Deco style. Born Louis Octave Maxime Le Verrier on January 29, 1891 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, the artist moved to London in 1909 before being enlisted by the French military at the outset of World War I. Shot down by German fighter planes during an air battle, he was captured and sent to prison camp in Munster, Germany, where he produced objects from clay. After the end of the war the artist attended the Beaux-Arts school in Geneva, where he made some of his first statuettes. Returning to France in 1918, Le Verrier opened his own atelier and gathered success during the 1920s and 1930s. With a fake identity the artist fled to the South of France during the Nazi occupation of Paris during World War II. Yet again he returned to Paris after the fighting ceased in 1944, where he lived and worked until his death on June 6, 1973 at the age of 82. Today, the Maison Max Le Verrier continues the tradition of the artist’s former workshop in Paris."
