Max Kalish was best known for his portraits of men at work but he also did a few nude studies. This wonderful large bronze shows a Lady dancing gracefully with her arms aside while she sways to the music.
She is very well modeled and is cast by the Meroni Radice Foundry in Paris that Kalish used for most of his bronzes. She is finished with a rich brown and green patina and is signed and dated 1930 on the bronze base, the green marble base is a newer addition.
Two of Max Kalish's bronzes of men laboring were sold in 2013 for over $25,000 each. We are offering this rare nude study for much less, and she is priced in the low four figures.
A fine example of this well known American sculptor's work, she would be an impressive bronze for any collection.
