Edgar Degas The little fourteen-year-old dancer (La Petite danseuse de 14 ans) 1879–81, cast 1922–37 bronze with cotton skirt and satin ribbon 99.0 x 35.2 x 24.5 cm Czestochowski/Pingeot 73 (cast unlettered) Museu de Arte de São Paulo, Assis Chateaubriand Donated by Alberto José Alves, Alberto Alves Filho and Alcino Ribeiro de Lima (426 E)

This is a sculpture by the French impressionist master Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917), which is in the permanent collection of the NGV in Melbourne. In 2016 The NGV held a fantastic exhibition of works by this artist and it was a fantastic experience seeing some of his magnificent works again.

  1. Always enjoyed his work. There are both his paintings and sculptures at the Chicago Art Institute.

  2. His dancers are graceful yet evocative.

  3. A true craftsman
