Description A French Art Nouveau bisque ceramic figural sculpture by Agathon Léonard, featuring a woman holding her dress with her right hand. Titled "Danseuse au cothurne" from "Le jeu de l'écharpe." Circa 1900. This figure is one of the "la danse" (the dance) set, originally produced and cast by Sevres and presented by the artist at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle.

Le jeu d’echarpe, created by Agathon Léonard at the turn of the 20th century, consists of 15 sculptures of young women in various poses. Some women dance with scarves; others hold musical instruments or carry flaming torches. Each of the 15 dancers is unique in terms of her pose, hair style and dress. Their dresses exhibit fluid drapery with flowing sleeves. The series was produced in both bronze and ceramic. Le jeu d’echarpe was inspired by the dancer Loïe Fuller.

A similar model is pictured in "Agathon Léonard: Le geste Art Nouveau" by Ingelore Boestge, Somogy editions d'art, Paris 2003, p.51, Plate number 13.
