Josephine Baker sculpture

Sébastien Tamari celebrates the cabaret dancer, Josephine Baker, a key figure of the Roaring Twenties who first sparkled scandal and then general enthusiasm with her interpretation in the Revue Nègre.

More than a portrait, it is the spirit of her extravagant dance that the artist wanted to represent. It shows the arched silhouette of the dancer who seems to twist herself to better respond to the rhythm of the Charleston, music then unknown in France.

The simplification of forms, without any accessories, emphasizes the movement and forms praised by the Parisians.
