Naked Dancers

Augustus Edwin John R.A., O.M. 1878 - 1961


Freely drawn sketch of nude male and female dancing figures. To the left are two female figures, the nearer seen from behind and her companion seen in profile, with their arms raised playing cymbals. In the foreground is a boy child dancing with arms raised and head thrown back; standing behind him is a cat who turns to look at him. To the centre-right are a male and female couple; the woman has an arm wrapped around the waist of her partner, they lean their heads towards one another. At the right edge is seated an elderly male figure, holding his hand to his head, which is turned away from the scene.
