"Le Jeu du Voile" by Antoine Bourdelle is a bronze statue that depicts a female figure in a playful pose, lifting her veil. Bourdelle's model here may have been his Russian pupil Markovich. The dancer appears to have been arrested in mid-air while performing an ancient ritual dance with enchanting measured movements. One can detect the influence of Art Nouveau in the stylised and flattened figure. This sculpture is also know nunder the title of Performance with a Veil (1909). The figure is depicted with a sensual expression, her flowing hair and clothing adding to the sense of movement in the piece. The veil itself adds a sense of mystery and allure to the statue, creating an enigmatic and captivating work of art. At the time of its creation, "Le Jeu du Voile" was widely praised for its innovative style and its powerful depiction of the female form. This statue remains a significant example of Bourdelle's ability to merge classical forms with modern elements, creating works that are both timeless and contemporary. The statue is a beautiful representation of the fluidity of the female form and the power of sensuality.


Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929) was an influential and prolific French sculptor and teacher. He was a student of Auguste Rodin, a teacher of Giacometti and Henri Matisse, and an important figure in the Art Deco movement and the transition from the Beaux-Arts style to modern sculpture.
