Introducing the exquisite bronze sculpture, inspired by the renowned model Marie Van Goethem. Marie, born on June 7, 1865, was a talented student at the école de Danse in Paris, and her exceptional skills led her to become a dancer at the Opéra by 1880. Capturing her essence with remarkable attention to detail, Edgar Degas crafted not only the sculpture itself but also an array of charcoal and pastel sketches, along with a preparatory sculptural study depicting the nude figure. Originally exhibited by Degas in the sixth Impressionist exhibition held in Paris in 1881, this captivating artwork acquired the title "The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer" (Petite danseuse de quatorze ans), solidifying its dating. Utilizing the lost-wax casting method, the sculpture was meticulously molded to perfection. This three-dimensional masterpiece is a true testament to Degas' artistry and is sure to enchant any admirer of his work.
