Born in 1947, Philadelphia, US, Dan Dailey studied fine art. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, he is currently a professor in the Glass Department of the Massachusetts College of Art. His favorite topic is women with voluptuous curves, conveying sensuality and hedonism. Le Soleil is the sixth piece of a nude sculpture series specially devised for Daum. The piece expresses the feeling of a woman who is delicately relishing on the heat of the sun.
