Little Dancer



Dressed Ballet Dancer, 1880/1881 by Edgar Degas, National Gallery, Washington.

Degas spent a great deal of time observing the world of the ballet. This statue represents the young girls in training, known as the "rats."

I found it of extra interest that critics at the time found her ugly and shocking in its realism.

I have heard that the skirt on that statue has had to be replaced a few times, is that true?

I love the combined mediums of this piece

I would still like to know the reason of making the Little Dancer.
Other than that, I really enjoyed the play.
