When Auguste Rodin met the troop of Cambodian dancers for the first time in July 1906, during their brief visit to Paris for an exceptional performance at the Pré Catalan theatre, it was like a revelation to him. He was struck by the timeless and universal nature of the movements of this dance, which transformed this relatively unknown form of art into a manifestation of the universal principle of the “unity of nature” through time and space. Professionally mounted, this iconic painting is complete with a finished wood frame and uv-protected glass.
