Arts/Modern Art

Epstein cast several bronzes of Dolores, a beautiful and devoted model who sang and danced in a London cabaret. In 1923, he completed a small study of her in the nude, lying on imaginery cushions with an aloof gaze. Dolores's flamboyance attracted Fleet Street, and after her death from cancer her memoirs were published in America.
