    Exhibited
    New York, Charles E. Slatkin Galleries, Renoir, Dégas, 7 November-6 December 1958, no.83 (illustrated pl. LI).

    Following his successful collaboration with Richard Guino, in 1918 Renoir made a small number of sculptures with the assistance of Louis Morel. Three panels of dancing figures set in an architectural framework were developed under Renoir's instruction. The first two, Danseuse au tambourin (I) and Joueur de flute, were cast in terracotta and bronze between 1946 and 1950. The present sculpture was developed from Renoir's La Danseuse au tambourin (1909; London, National Gallery), and was retained by the dealer Ambroise Vollard after the artist's death.
