Renowned German artist Schmidt-Cassel Gustav (1867 - 1954) was revered for his irrefutable talent in sculpting and engraving epitomized in the Art Deco style. This Berlin-based artist wrapped up the world in an enraptured hush with his globally acclaimed creation - the monument to Peter I in Riga (1910), gracefully posing in the city's vibrant center.

'The Dancer', an evocative specimen of Gustav's work, was crafted during the latter phase of his illustrious career. This period was strongly defined by his shift in focus towards petite, artfully ornate sculptures representing dancers and the vibrant stage personalities of that epoch.

Crafted with unparalleled finesse, 'The Dancer' embodies the pulsating energy of the dance, frozen in time. Gustav's meticulous attention to the minute details of the dancer's costume is particularly arresting. Measuring an imposing 55cm in height, this sculpture adorns an intricately hand-applied green patina lending it a unique allure.
