This exquisite early 20th-century French reproduction bronze sculpture by Henri (Enrique) Molins-Balleste (1893-1958) captures the essence of the Art Deco era with its depiction of a graceful dancer in motion. With one leg kicked upward and arms extended to each side, the dancer exudes elegance and fluidity, embodying the spirit of the era. Despite wearing only an undergarment, her movement radiates grace and poise. The sculpture showcases meticulous attention to detail, from the fine facial features to the subtle muscular definition of the dancer's body, including her stomach, knees, back, and spine. Her bobbed hairdo, reminiscent of the Flapper style synonymous with the Roaring Twenties, adds to the sculpture's authenticity and charm. Patinated with a handsome brown color, the bronze sculpture is further enhanced by its tiered square base crafted from black marble, adding to its visual appeal and sophistication. Signed by the artist on the base, this piece stands as a testament to Molins-Balleste's talent and skill in capturing the beauty and spirit of the Art Deco era through his art.
