Degas Nude Dancer with Raised Right Foot Statue 18HPN# 5476
For his sculptures as well as for his paintings, Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917) found a ready source of inspiration in the ballet dancers of the Paris Opera. Our reproduction is based on an original bronze sculpture cast in 1920, one of several versions that explore subtle variations in the dynamics of a dancer's movement. Here she lifts her one foot, holds it, and swing her counter balancing arm out in a simple, yet expressive gesture.
Now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum, this licensed reproduction is made from bonded bronze, hand patinated, 18"H x 6.5"W.
