$5,252.23

About

A very striking Art Deco bronze figure of the dancer Nattova in stretched ballet pose, the elegant line further emphasised by her naked body. The bronze patinaed with a deep, rich brown colour, the surface chased with fine detail and finished on a rectangular base with raised lettering with title to one side La Danseuse Nattova and further with the name of the artist to the other side S Yourievitch Sculpt Natasha Nattova was a leading avant garde Russian ballerina who moved to the West and successfully took up Burlesque and Cabaret in London, New York and Paris. Born 8th August 1905 in Petrograd, Russia, Natasha Nattova and her parents, fled the Russian revolution and settled in Nice where the glamour of the Riviera coloured her childhood. She soon went to Paris and studied dancing under Clustine, the ballet master of the Opera and in time was admitted into the company in small roles. During this period she began painting and writing poetry and became interested in modern dancing. At first she just gave a number of recitals. She considered her adagio work at the time as conservative and mild yet observed ‘they had never seen anything of the sort in France, and it was hailed as being very thrilling.’ Serge Youriévitch (Russian: ?????? ????????????? ???????, March 31, 1876 - December 18, 1969) was a French sculptor of noble Russian birth, a statesman, writer, and one-time chamberlain to Emperor Nicholas II of Russia.
