This sculpture is amazing! When the public visits a museum, they repeatedly visit the same artworks to look at them from a different perspective. This fantastic sculpture offers art lovers the ability to “view” their favorite artwork in their own home, from an entirely different perspective, and in a different dimension: 3D! Have you ever wondered what the artwork looked like from behind the painting? Or from the side? To remind you of your museum experience, each figurine comes with a color card of the original painting, information about the painter and a description of the specific figurine reproduced.
Degas’ mastery of oil pastel is evident in the free-flowing grace of this dancer rehearsing her performance. From her outstretched arm to delicate extended leg, the artwork — here interpreted as a statue — bespeaks true mastery. We are privileged to be offering this masterful reproduction of Degas famous oil pastel, Danseuse Verte (Green Dancer), because it adds a new dimension to our understanding of his artistry.
For ten years Degas sketched the young women training and then reused the sketches for new artworks during the next forty years. The early rehearsal scenes were done in oil; and in 1878, he started using pastels for his dancers, nudes and horse-track scenes. Although sometimes association with Impressionism, his artwork has an unidealized quality which at times, more closely associates him with Realism.
