Dancer and Gazelles

Paul Manship American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774

The sweeping curves and articulated silhouette of this group make it one of Manship's finest compositions. A graceful seminude dancer is poised on her toes between two gazelles that seem to move in rhythmic counterpoint to the dancer's swirling drapery. The inspiration that Manship derived from Indian art is particularly apparent in this work.
