DESCRIPTION
 
Sosson – Louis, (French, Early 20th Century) Louis Sosson was a sculptor and accomplished ivory carver, who at one time worked for Edmond Etling, they include several children, some female nudes, dancers, a woman skier with her skis on her back, and some Dutch children in costume. In 1909, Edmond Laurent Etling opened a shop in Paris on the ‘Rue de Paradis nr. 29. In this shop one could buy the most exclusive art objects of that time, mainly made of bronze, ivory, ceramics or glass. Etling represented world famous sculptors and artists like Dimitri Chiparus, Louis Sosson, A. Godard, Claire-Jean Roberte Colinet, Lucille Sevin and her husband Jean Theodore Delabassé, Gazan, Georges Béal, Maurice Guiraud-Rivičre and Marcel Guillard. These artisans were all leading members of the French modern art of that time and by creating ideal circumstances for them, Etling played a significant role in the style, which later became known as Art Deco.
