Description "Soubrette" by Janet de Coux


"A young woman stands at ease, the right leg thrown sharply forward, the left hand on the hip. A simple dress molds the figure, the surface broken by a row of fluting at the waist. The end of a scarf around her neck flies out over her left arm. Her short, straight hair is held by a wide band. With her right hand she touches the top of a stump beside her, sheathed in leaves and bunches of berries, on the top of which sits a monkey. The original idea is carried out with simplicity. It was modeled in 1931." ("Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture", Beatrice Gilman Proske, 1968).
