About

This gilt bronze figural sculpture by Louis Chalon depicts a dancing woman with an octopus at her feet, one of its tendrils wrapped intimately around her leg. Her rolling unfurled veils, imbuing her with exoticism, as her free-form dance movement and extended limbs dramatically draw apart her clothing in an expression of feminine sensuality. Artist: Louis Chalon Circa: 1900 Dimensions: 20.5" height, 15" width, 7" depth Materials: Gilt bronze Signed: "L. Chalon" and stamp "Louchet Paris Chisper" Literature: Similar sculpture pictured in Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris, by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p. 101
