La Danseuse Diane Belli (1923). Jean-Gabriel Domergue (French, 1889-1962). Gouache, watercolour, charcoal and pencil on paper laid down on canvas. Domergue exquisitely captures the exuberance and insouciance of this hedonist age through his subject, Diane Belli, the essence of la garçonne, the emancipated woman with a passion for the latest in fashion, hairstyle and dance. The sensuously clad dancer wears a costume which clings to her beautifully athletic body.
