- About the artworkSpanish dancer by Maurice Guiraud-Rivière, ca. 1920. The typical proud pose of a flamenco dancer, complete with typical hairdress, stole, fan and shoes. The folds in the fabric and the way the drapery falls over the plinth are masterfully done. The sensual pose and her nakedness are further enhanced by the semi-enveloping clothing.Spaanse danseres van Maurice Guiraud-Rivière, ca. 1920.
De typische trotse houding van een flamenco danseres, compleet met typerende haardracht, stola, waaier en schoenen. De plooien in het stof en zoals de draperie over de sokkel valt is meesterlijk gedaan. De sensuele houding en haar naaktheid worden nog versterkt door de half omhullende kleding.
