Agathon Léonard "Danseuse À L'écharpe No. Gilt Bronze Sculpture

$59,500

About

This gilt bronze sculpture by Agathon Léonard, entitled "Danseuse À L'Écharpe No. 14," was likely inspired by the incredible "scarf dancing" made famous by the renowned turn-of-the-century dancer, Loïe Fuller. The incredible bronze form seems frozen by a Midas touch mid-motion; though lushly monochromatic, the figure is so well-cast as to give individual life to every fold, crease and ripple of fabric, as well as the dancer's delicate, serene features. Product Details: Item #: YS-19618 Artist: Agathon Léonard Circa: 1901 Country: France Dimensions: 24" height, 18" width, 10" depth Materials: Bronze Signed: A.
