A large expressive C. 1920 Art Deco American painting signed by the artist Sidis, a name which is unfamiliar to us. Though mysterious, this is a fabulous work featuring a harem of nude forest sprites making merriment in lavish erotic dance. The tree foliage is boldly applied impasto paint, which provides stark contrast to the muted tones and traditional painterly technique of the figures. Housed in its original and spectacular American Arts & Crafts / Art Deco transitional period ornate frame.
