Initially interested in painting, Manship opted to pursue sculpture after discovering he was color-blind.
One of Manship’s most popular compositions, this work established his reputation as an important up-and-coming sculptor. Here, his mastery of elegant silhouette is manifest through the gracefully posed dancer and her sleek animal companions. Stylized decorative patterning embellishes the dancer’s hair and swaying skirt.
