Edgar Degas, Dancer, Bronze, Modern Cast

Estimate: €800 - €1,040

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.
