    impressed E. BRANDT

    Exhibited:
    Note: Brandt exhibited his impressive "Danseur" fire screen (also known as "Les Plumes" or "The Feathers") at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris in 1925. The inspiration for the subject of this fire screen likely came from the Folies-Bergère, the famous Parisian night club where Josephine Baker often performed with large ostrich plumes. In the same fashion, the female dancer on this screen balances on one leg holding a tambourine above her head, framed as if on stage by a series of scrolls and whimsical feathers.  Brandt incorporates signature visual devices including fans, the running band around the perimeter, and the Egyptian lotus and lily motifs below the dancing figure to further develop the stylized context.  Brandt later executed two related pairs of decorative grilles displaying dancers surrounded by feathers for the Folies-Bergère around 1926.
