(Large range of art deco bronze dancer statues )
Originally known in French as “art decoratif”, art deco refers to a decorative form of art that was first produced from 1920 to 1940. The focus of this artistic movement was on design of objects that people use on a daily basis. The idea of art deco was opposed to the mass produced art. Instead, it emphasized on making everything special, unique, valuable, and beautiful.
One of the standout objects from this time period is the art deco bronze dancer. These figurines were mainly created to feature female dancers. They brought to the fore the femininity of slender dancing women. These were made to be sensual at the same time.
The art deco bronze dancer is portrayed in varied positions, whether nude or fully dressed. It is not meant to depict ordinary women. Rather, designers make every effort to showcase dancers. Apart from bronze, the figurines may also be made from porcelain. While some may remain in the original bronze color, others are decorated using gold, nacre or glass.
How And Why Were The Figurines Made?
To make an art deco bronze dancer, the figurine is put on a marble base. The figurine is shown in varied dancing positions with the marble base looking like the dance floor. In most cases, they are hand-cast. They were made to portray beauty and sensuality. Some were made as standalone items while others were included in pieces of furniture and lamps.
It is instructive to note that the majority of these pieces of art were made to enhance esthetics in the home. They embodied modern design and reflected the freshly gained women’s self-confidence. That’s why they focused on bringing out the femininity of the female dancer. Their makers aimed to show that the female body is something to be proud of.
The time period when this form of art came to the fore was in between the two world wars. As such, figurines were used as portrayals of societal changes at that time. Women were just rising from centuries of oppression. They were rediscovering their strength, especially concerning the power of their beauty.
