    With the takeover by Karl Hagenauer at the end of the 1920s, the Werkstatte Hagenauer began to produce its famous female figurines. The two brothers, Karl and Franz, designed impressive sculptures of female nudes, frivolous ladies with greyhounds, or, as here, of a posing woman.

    Karl Hagenauer lets the dancer slide to the floor with theatrical aplomb. With her arms raised in a very expressive pose, she is turning her head sideways, revealing her beauty as if oblivious. A certain preference for the athletic type of woman is readily apparent in this statuette. The dancer is captured in a masterly reduced manner without making her appear ethereal.

    Simply superb are details such as her finely chiseled hands and defined drawn legs. With its power of design and masterful execution, this statuette from the Werkstatte Hagenauer can easily stand in comparison with sculptures of international Art Deco.
