Tribute to DEGAS
Degas Dancing Dance art Bronze Collection
HOMAGE TO DANCE ARTISTS
A homage to the French dance artist Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917). Degas is considered the master of drawing the human figure in motion. His extraordinary draftsmanship, which stressed balance and clarity of outline, became a hallmark of his work. He worked in many media, preferring pastel to all others, and is best known for his intimate, immediate drawings of ballerinas and bathing nudes.
“The subject matter for this series is based on an account I read of Edgar Degas’s sometimes habit of arriving at his studio and finding the model ready to work, but feeling disinclined to start just then and still dressed in his street clothes asks for a dance. After a brief turn about, the studio raised his hat and thanked the girl, leaving for the afternoon, probably for a meal “.
