Up for purchase is this GUARANTEED all Original 62" inch high Dancing Girl Fountain entitled the Dancing Girl which is signed Bessie Potter Vonnoh. A very important American Sculptor and well listed in all Art books. The Fountain  is Magnificent and quite difficult to come by in this, the most desirable size.. This particular Fountain of the same size brought at Christies Auction in May 2001 over 64 thousand six hundred dollars. This is the same Bronze I am selling for 45,000. It is a sensational buy for the collector or lover of  Bronzes done by Bessie Potter Vonnoh. 

This is a working Fountain which was removed from a Scarsdale NY Estate Grounds. The condition of the Bronze is very good and the Patina is consistent with the age of the Bronze casting. Bessie Potter Vonnoh, was born in 1872 and passed in 1955, An American sculptor, she was born in St. Louis, studied under Lorado Taft at the Art Institute of Chicago. She was Taft's assistant in his work for the World's Columbian Exposition at Chicago in 1893. Vonnoh was among the first American sculptors to focus on small bronzes, producing affordable sculpture for the home. Her oeuvre, close to two hundred works (not counting duplicates and variations), also included terracotta statuettes, portrait busts, plasters, marbles, and noteworthy public commissions, such as the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Bird Fountain at Oyster Bay and the Frances Hodgson Burnett Fountain in Central Park. Her small bronzes—Young Mother, Dancing Girl, Reading Girl, and others—are in the museums of New York City, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and other cities. Her fountain figures also are notable for their delicate charm and sentiment. She was married in 1899 to Robert Vonnoh,. 1858–1933, American portrait painter, 
Bessie Onahotema Potter Vonnoh (1872-1955) 

A Missouri-born sculptor, she was one of the most successful women artists of her generation.  Vonnoh studied at the Art Institute of Chicago under Lorado Taft and worked as his assistant.  Inspired by the statuettes of Paul Troubetzkoy, she began sculpting small figures in bronze.  These sculptures, particularly those of mothers and children, became quite popular; her work was frequently compared to that of painter Mary Cassatt.  Vonnah also achieved success as a sculptor of fountains and works for the garden. 

After her marriage to painter Robert Vonnoh in 1899, the couple moved to New York, where they established a joint studio.  They also maintained a summer home in the art colony of Lyme, Connecticut.  Vonnoh exhibited widely throughout her career. She was elected a Member of the National Sculpture Society and an Academician of the National Academy. 

Her work is in the collections of Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum in New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Denver Art Museum; the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas; and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia.
