A kinetic and surrealist hypnotic work showing an African Fertility Dance that has a similar aesthetic to the covers the artist was creating for the American Weekly magazine in the 1940s. This could have been a proposed illustration for the title, but the overt eroticism of the scene makes us think it was likely a separate commission for a more niche market. Inscribed Property of Andre Durenceau lower right; a jarring work by one of our favorite avant-garde art deco era illustrators. Nicely matted and framed behind glass in a period frame.
