Large Guéridon Sculpture of an Egyptian Woman, Venice C. 1865, Italy

US$37,543.31

About

Venice, c. 1865 Wood, carved and set, partially gilded. On a pedestal decorated with lancet leaves and a surrounding animal frieze with four kneeling servants, the impressive figure of a graceful, richly decorated Egyptian dancer, carrying a bowl on her head. Since Napoleon's Egyptian Campaign in 1798, the Orient has inspired numerous scholars, writers and artists. Some were afflicted by a veritable Egyptomania, which, however, was usually inspired more by romanticising fantasies about the strange, exotic culture than by verifiable sources. Depictions of sensual odalisques or such permissive dancers fuelled Orientalism in the Occident.
