Degas ~ The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer; cast in 1922 from a mixed-media sculpture modeled ca. 1879–80 Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917) Bronze, partly tinted, with cotton skirt and satin hair ribbon, on a wooden base
Female figure by Edgar Degas. It is interesting to compare the beautiful scumbled paint on the towel and carpet in this painting with some of Titian's late works. Like Titian Degas rubbed, wiped and scraped the paint as he applied it. The paint has a life all its own.
