Description: Artist: WALTER SCHNACKENBERG (1880-1961) Size: 34 1/4 x 45 in./87 x 114.3 cm Consée, München One of Schnackenberg's finest creations, this couple exudes Art Deco style and sensuality. However, there is also something distinctly Germanic about the design -- the eerie color palette, the self-satisfied superiority of the characters, a nod to the overly mannered, hyper-stylized social settings of the pre-Weimar period. (Art Deco, great art deco)
