Dancer, 1912, Paolo Troubetzkoy

© Randall Hobbet - All rights reserved - 2014 Getty Center, Los Angeles: Countess Tamara de Svirsky, the famous Russian pianist and dancer depicted here, performed throughout Europe and the United States. She posed for this lively composition in 1909 in Paris, where Troubetzkoy, the Italian-born son of a Russian prince and an American mother, resided between 1905 and 1914. The energetic handling of the preparatory wax model has been transferred into this bronze cast, a characteristic of the sculptor's expressive technique.
