Lower Portion of a Female Figure


Description Provenance Credit
Description The plaque shows only the legs and lower torso of a dancing nude figure amid clouds. It was part of a long running border of similar figures, of which many examples have been found. There is a slight break at the lower right edge, and the bottom edge is broken. Such pieces must have been glued to a wooden core, as there are no signs of attachment.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date of acquisition unknown], by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
