Agathon Léonard "Danseuse Tambourin à Droite" Bisque Ceramic Sculpture
This bisque ceramic figural sculpture by Agathon Léonard, titled "La danse du tambourin, tête penchée à droite" ("Tambourine dance, head leaning to the right"), is from the French Art Nouveau artist's series "Le jeu d'écharpe." The beautiful dancer, in her flowing robes, is amazingly caught in a state of pure tranquility despite the clear nature of her rhythmic movement; her robes flow and her tambourine seems to jingle just as her face rests in a blissfully peaceful expression.
