Victor Ségoffin Patinated Bronze Figural Sculpture


This French Art Nouveau patinated bronze figural sculpture, by Victor Ségoffin, depicts a dancer with scarves and cymbals, her mouth agape as though mid-song, throws her body passionately into a posture of strength and beauty, so clearly adhering to an unheard melody that the viewer is tempted to listen for it regardless. The luxe rippling of her gown and the seeming weightlessness of her scarf as it soars above her speak to the technical ability of Ségoffin as a master sculptor and caster.
