Bronze dimensions with marble base: height 15.5 x width 7dimensions of marble: 7 x 5.5height without base: 14.5weight: 13 lbs inventory: 47ep7387174 the model of this essentially realistic work is known for having been married van goethem. Born on June 7, 1865, she was a student at the Paris dance school and in 1880 she was hired as a dancer at the opera.The care with which degas observed his model is reflected not only in the sculpture itself, but also in the unusual number of surviving sketches of the charcoal and pastel model, as well as in a preparatory sculptural study of the naked figure. The title, the fourteen-year-old dancer, given to the original sculpture in mixed techniques when it was exhibited by degas in the sixth impressionist exhibition held in Paris in 1881, provides the strongest proof of the date of the sculpture. The sculpture was moulded using the lost wax moulding method. It is an exquisite three-dimensional work of art for all degas enthusiasts.
