Dancer looking at the Sole of her Right Foot

DEGAS, Edgar (1834 - 1917)

Dancer looking at the Sole of her Right Foot

Media: bronze

Size: 45.7 cm

Acquired: 1952; Bequest; Gwendoline Davies

Accession Number: NMW A 2458

Collection: The Davies Sisters Collection

Degas modelled numerous figures, more as an independent exploration of form than a preparatory stage in the production of finished sculpture. In 1919-21 bronze editions of 73 figures found in his studio were produced by the Hébrard foundry. Originally modelled around 1890, this figure reflects direct observation and a knowledge of Classical and Renaissance sculpture. Gwendoline Davies purchased this cast in 1923.
