DEGAS' DANCER

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.
