Description A good and attractive bronze by Edward Onslow Ford of a beautiful orientalist dancer, semi-clad and in motion. Inscribed Onslow Ford. Circa 1890s.
The British-born sculptor began his career as a painter at the Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, before attending the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Munich, where his professor encouraged Ford to take up sculpture. Upon his return to London in 1874, Ford built up a successful practice initially based on portraiture, exhibiting at the Royal Academy from 1875 and at the Grosvenor Gallery from 1879.
From 1886 Ford modelled a series of bronze statuettes in which he endeavoured to embody playfulness of which this is a fine example.
