Allegory of Dance

Last quarter of the XIX century. Marble. Room 062

A graceful young woman is depicted nude, playing the tambourine and encircled below by a group of mischievous children who dance around her. Particularly virtuoso in its technique, this example of decorative sculpture is based on models by Carrier-Belleuse, who was noted for his idealised nudes.
