Black Belgian marble "Torso of a Dancer" at an unidentified location

Subject

Figure sculpture, American--20th century.
Fredericks, Marshall M., 1908-1998
Marble sculpture, American

Description

After modeling the Torso of a Dancer in about 1934, Fredericks carved it in Belgian black marble for the Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He subsequently used the original plaster model to create several bronze casts.

The nude female form is a subject that has entranced artists since the dawn of time. Fredericks' treatment is typical of sculptors working during the Art Deco period when streamlined, elegant forms predominated, yet Fredericks' realistic but slightly idealized treatment of this traditional subject also illustrates his personal, mature style.
