Description

Although best known as a sculptor, Roche was a versatile and prolific artist who worked in many mediums. Loïe Fuller, the pioneer of modern dance who took Paris by storm in 1892, was one of his favorite subjects. He portrayed her in clay, bronze, marble, plaster, and in a series of gypsographs that illustrated an essay by the art critic Roger Marx. The book was described as "a precious monument to Loïe Fuller."
