The composition by Joel Martel from 1926, is based on the circle and is Cubist in style. Two straight lines indicate the opposite movement of the arms and legs. The intensity and dramatization are suggested by the play of lines that accentuate the “plasticity” of this type of dance.
Joel Martel (Le Moulin, 1896 – Paris 1966): Sculptor, designer. He always worked with his twin brother, Jan. Together, they created a large number of decorative sculptures ranging from radiator caps to memorials.
