A stunning bronze made from the lost wax process (cire perdue). It is a recast of the original by Dimitri Chiparus.The seductive attire of this dancer appears to be Near Eastern.The attention to detail is fantastic and the sculpture, set on an attractive marble base, is extremely lifelike.Demetre Chiparus (1886-1947) is regarded as the master of Art Deco bronzes. His sculptures highlight the timeless beauty of the dancers and fashion of the period. Whether his subjects are femmes fatales or demure heroines, all of Chiparus''s women possess the idealized attitudes of the dance and the erotic posturings of the music hall. Their bodies are lithe and active, glorying in freedom, knowing no constraints. Their costumes reflect the elegant fashions of the day.Height 40 cmWidth 32 cmDepth 11 cm
