La Danseuse Titeux - Vignette

A closer look at the Titeux Dancer

The Titeux Dancer displayed in the Louvre is a terracotta statuette made in ancient Greece, shortly before the celebrated figurines from Tanagra. Many female statuettes dating from the late 5th and early 4th centuries BC show a sensual treatment of the body, revealed through fine, transparent drapery.
