Estimate: €1,280 - €1,600

Description: Cast bronze, greenish-brown patina on black marble base; modern cast after the work from c. 1877-1885Edgar Degas (1834-1917) – One of the most important representatives of French impressionism, who is recorded mainly for his ballet scenes and racecourse depictions Dimensions: c. 31 x 43 x 8.5 cmProvenance Private collection, GermanyAn early copy of the bronze is in the collection of the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. Condition:The bronze is in very good condition, showing only the lightest traces from usage.Edgar Degas (1834-1917)Edgar Degas first studied law but soon abandoned his studies to pursue a career as an artist. From 1853 he was trained by Louis Lamothe, one of Ingres’ students. He briefly attended the École des Beaux-Art but then decided to continue his artistic training independently. He copied ancient reliefs and the old masters in the museums of Paris. In 1856 Degas made a study trip to Italy. Upon his return to Paris three years later he worked primarily as a portrait painter and created several history paintings before dedicating himself to the contemporary Parisian life as his favorite subject matter. Degas rejected plein air painting, instead he worked in his studio with models or made use from his own drawings. His models were mainly women, often descendant from lower social classes. In addition, he also depicted social scenes on the racecourse, at the museum or theater. However, ballet dancers were Degas’ most popular subject. His oeuvre consists mainly of drawings and pastels, but he also created sculptures and developed an interest in photography in the 1890s. Thanks to the support of his gallerist Paul Durand-Ruel, his work soon found appreciation amongst collectors. The most important collections of works by Edgar Degas are in the possession of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

EDGAR DEGAS (ATTRIBUE A) (1837-1917)   VUE DU MONT SAINT-MICHEL, CIRCA 1885

Estimate: €2,000 - €3,000

Description: EDGAR DEGAS (ATTRIBUE A) (1837-1917) VUE DU MONT SAINT-MICHEL, CIRCA 1885 Mine de plomb sur papier marouflée sur papier Annoté "eau" en bas à gauche 7,3 x 16,5 cm - 2.7 x 6.2 in. Inscribed "eau" lower left, pencil on paper laid down on paper Provenance : - Collection privée, Ille et Vilaine Ce ne pourrait être qu'en août 1885 que ce dessin a été exécuté. Degas écrit alors, de Paramé, à son marchand à Durand-Ruel : " Je ne reviendai à Paris que samedi. "On" va au Mont Saint Michel jusqu'à jeudi. " (Lettre LXXVII, page 101 de Lettres de Degas, recuellies et annotées par Marcel Guérin, Grasset, Paris, 1945) Il écrit encore quelques jours plus tard à Daniel Halévy : " Vous savez que je reviens d'une délicieuse tournée et qu'après Mademoiselle Alice Biot, le Mont Saint Michel et l'auberge de Madame Poulard m'ont fait la plus vive impression. […] Puis on part pour le Mont Saint Michel, on y reste quelques jours. " (Lettre LXXX, page 104, op. cit.) Au cours d'un tel voyage, il dispose sans le moindre doute de l'un de ces carnets dans lesquels il dessine les paysages comme il prend des notes préparatoires pour les toiles. Il dessine à plusieurs reprises ce Mont Saint Michel. Sur l'un de ces dessins, il écrit " Mont St Michel " et indique la date " Août 1885 ". Cette vue est dessinée à marée haute. (La route représentée au premier plan a été prolongée en 1878 et 1879 par une digue-route qui est encore alors recouverte par la mer lors des marées hautes.) Sur la tour de rempart représentée à gauche, Degas n'a pas indiquée la Tour Gabriel ; celle-ci n'a pas été encore restaurée en 1885. (Comme il n'est pas représentée la sculpture de l'archange d'Emmanuel Frémiet qui n'est mise en place qu'en 1897 sur la flèche érigée par le charpentier Crepaux et conçue par l'architecte Victor Petitgrand.) Ces données historiques, la graphie de l'annotation (mot eau écrit en bas à gauche), l'écriture très assurée et très structurée de ce dessin à la mine de plomb, la notation du traitement des arbres comme celle de l'herbe par hachures, conduisent à pouvoir reconnaître un dessin de la main d'Edgar Degas.
