Rodin - Statue - Dancer Movement (1910-1911)
About the Dancer Movement sculpture
Auguste Rodin sculpted the dancer movement statue after he met Alda Moreno in July 1910, a dancer at the Opéra Comique. He was fascinated by her suppleness and wanted to get her to pose immediately. The statue is the exact miniature replica of Rodin's original work. Even though the reproduction is in resin, the bronze aspect is finely rendered with a professional finish. The statue features a dancer in the standing position holding on her left leg in arched position and holding her left leg with her hands. According to Rodin, sculpture and dance draw on the same religious sources, which explains the occasionally unexpected closeness of the two art forms.
