Dancer Sculpture

After beginning to lose his eyesight after his fiftieth birthday, Degas became increasingly dependent on his sense of touch and so started to turn from painting to sculpting. Although during the last period of his life he hardly ever showed his work to anybody, he decided after working on the Dancer for more than two years, to send his work to the impressionist exhibition in Paris. After he had carefully sculpted the body, he had the clothes custom made: the bodice, the net dancing skirt and the ballet shoes. This replica is faithful to the original because it includes a cloth skirt and hair bow as had the original. Edgar Degas' signature appears on the underside of the base and the statue comes with a color description card. Made from resin on a wood base. Measures 13.5 x 6 x 6 in.
