A very unusual midcentury handcrafted stoneware sculpture of a girl playing cymbals attributed to renowned artist and writer Quentin Bell (British, 1910-1996). The stoneware figure is heavily made and portrays the figure of a dancing lady playing cymbals attached with straps around both hands. The figure is loosely cast using the natural characteristics of the clay to form movement in the figure. The hollowed out figure stands on flat base.The figure is well and professionally crafted and hollowed and is not signed.
Provenance: From a large collection which was acquired in the British Art Market. A large element of the collection was sold immediately and acquired by a serious collector however we had retained a few pieces which we are now offering for sale.
In good condition.
