If you have questions please contact us.Condition: this sculpture is in perfect condition. Bronze dimensions with marble base height: 1 5.5 \The model for this essentially realistic work is known to have been Marie van Goethem. Born June 7, 1865, she was a student at the Parisian dance school and in 1880 she was hired as a dancer at the opera.
The care with which Degas observes his model is reflected not only in the sculpture itself, but also in the unusual number of surviving models of charcoal and pastel, as well as in a sculptural preparatory study of the nude figure. The title, the little fourteen-year-old dancer (little 14-year-old dancer), given to the original mixed-gender sculpture when it was exhibited by degas in the sixth Impressionist exhibition, held in Paris in 1881, provides the most proof solid for the date of the sculpture.
The sculpture was cast using the lost wax method. This is an exquisite three dimensional work of art for anyone who is passionate degassing. Most orders are shipped within 24 to 48 hours of purchase. However, additional fees may apply.
