Petite Danseuse De Quatorze Ans (Little Dancer of Fourteen Years) from 1879-1881, is the only sculpture Edgar Degas chose to exhibit throughout his lifetime. He created a revolutionary piece breaking the stereotypical cold inanimate sculptures of his time. He made his ballet dancer come to life. Although received with some disapproval because of its stark realism, it has become one of the most time honoured, beloved sculptures around the world. The little dancer represents the time honored tradition many young girls experience - the ballet class.
This little dancer figurine of Degas' famous sculpture is a delight. She wears a fabric skirt and has a fabric bow in her hair too. Degas's signature appears on the bottom of the base. This little dancer figurine would be a timeless addition to your art collection, beloved by adults and children alike!
Made from resin with hand-painted colour details, included with this little dancer figurine is a full colour card with an image of original artwork and a description card about Degas and his sculpture. Both cards are in four languages.
