Presenting an exquisite bronze sculpture that pays homage to the artistic brilliance of Edgar Degas, capturing the essence of his renowned model, Marie Van Goethem. Born on June 7, 1865, Marie was not only a student at the école de Danse in Paris but also a talented dancer at the Opéra by 1880. Degas’ meticulous observation of his subject is evident not only in the lifelike quality of the sculpture itself but also in the numerous surviving sketches and a preparatory nude sculptural study of Marie. The title, “The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer” (Petite danseuse de quatorze ans), bestowed upon the original mixed-media sculpture showcased in the sixth Impressionist exhibition of 1881, serves as a firm anchor for dating this masterpiece.

Crafted with precision using the revered lost-wax casting method, this three-dimensional work of art brings forth the essence of Degas’ dedication to his craft. The sculpture stands as a testament to his keen observation and artistic vision, perfectly capturing Marie’s grace and presence. With its rich historical significance and connection to the Impressionist movement, this sculpture is a must-have for any admirer of Degas’ legacy.

Enhancing its allure, the sculpture proudly bears the signature of the master himself, Degas. This hallmark authenticates its origin and adds a touch of exclusivity to an already extraordinary piece. Whether displayed in a curated collection or as a centerpiece, this bronze sculpture embodies the essence of Degas’ artistry and is sure to captivate art enthusiasts and collectors alike.
