Terpsichore was the Greek muse of dance. In this work, Dali juxtaposes a classical Greek dancer (green patinated) with the modern Cubist dancer (gold polished) – a dance through art history, from classical to modern. The classic is complete, but the branches of change sprout from the modern.
Original bronze edition, conceived in 1977 and first cast in 1984, personally authorized by Dali.
