Arabesque Dancer Study Sculpture Replica by Edgar Degas 17LPN# 4687
Although known locally for a sharp tongue and a quick temper, Edgar Degas revealed in his art a tender appreciation for women, in cafes, in the bath, but especially in the ballet. In the 1880s, when his eyesight began to fail, Degas began increasingly to work in sculpture such as this Arabesque. Now in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris (ca. 1890s), this reduction of a dancer stretching forward into third position illustrates Degas perfect mastery of sculpture. As she stretches forward, she balances with ease and poise. (PN 4687)
