Bronze Nude Tambourine Dancer
Splendid patinated bronze nude dancer by the Austrian sculptor Karl Tuch (born 1882).
She is standing with real attitude on one leg with the other raised just a little from the floor in front of her. Holding a tambourine and looking slightly to one side, she is confidently thrusting her splendid body towards us. With an undoubted look of the between the wars demi-monde, the young lady looks totally in control of her situation.
Finished with a dark brown patination and signed Prf. Tuch on the socle. Further mounted on a graduated circular portoro marble base.
This very eye-catching sculpture dates from around the late 1920’s and is an impressive size with an overall height of 70 cm. The diameter of the marble base is 24 cm.
