Folies Bergère Dancing Girl
Striking oil on panel dating from circa 1940 of a young Folies Bergère dancer.
A strongly stylised and atmospheric image showing the nude girl in her stage make-up posing in front of a large fan with her head thrown nonchalantly back.
In its original frame which bears a stamp on the back with the details of the Parisian gallery that originally sold it.
