Josephine Baker - Sébastien TamariLog in to see prices
Sebastien Tamari celebrates the cabaret dancer Josephine Baker, a key figure of the Roaring Twenties who first caused a scandal and then a general craze with her performance in the Revue Nègre.
More than a portrait, it is the spirit of her extravagant dance that the artist wanted to represent. He depicts the dancer's curvaceous figure, which seems to contort itself to better respond to the rhythm of the Charleston, a music then unknown in France.
The simplification of the forms, without any accessory, emphasizes her movement and her forms then praised by the whole of Paris.
