Roland Paris (1894-1945) is one of the most recognizable artists of the Art Deco world, yet his work remains something of an enigma. His art is caricature-like, bordering grotesque, and he delivers critical perspectives on society's downtrodden via jesters and devils. His mediums range from sculpture and painting to porcelain and wood, including woodcuts and the written word.
This never before seen study focuses on the artist's trials and tribulations while living in Nazi-ruled Germany, and the tragic end to his life, hours before the end of World War Two.
