"The Last Dance"

(approx. 17"h by 22"w)
Tempera on panel.

NOTE:  This painting continues Cox's interest in dancers. See the painting 'Dancer' (1939), as well as the references to Indian sculpture in the story 'The Table' (1952) in the selection of poetry and prose. Also note the tendrils and vines winding around the 'dancer' in this painting, and compare this motif to the vine around the leg of the woman in [Lovers in a Wood](1949).
