Degas Statue - Large - Spanish Dance (1883)



About Degas Statue - Large - Spanish Dance (1883)

This statue is a reproduction of one of two known sculptural studies by Edgar Degas treating a Spanish dance.

Degas may have chosen this pose"”called a cambré, or bend from the waist"”after seeing Edouard Manet "painting Spanish Dance (1862), which includes two dancers posed in a similar manner, at a retrospective of the artist "work in 1883. Degas was probably also influenced by an 1837 bronze by Jean Auguste Barre of the ballerina Fanny Elssler, who achieved her greatest success performing the cachucha, a Spanish dance featured in a ballet choreographed by Jean Coralli.

    While considered a founder of Impressionism, Edgar Degas hated the term and considered himself a realist. His paintings display great technical skill as well as artistic sensibilities. His ability to showcase perspectives and subjects differentiated him from most of his contemporaries. In the 1870’s Degas penned his most renowned works, including Foyer de la Danse and Musicians in the Orchestra. In this time, he drew inspiration from cafes, boulevards, shops, and more. Above all, he spent his time capturing the beauty of natural, everyday humanity. Although he denied and despised the term, “Impressionist,” it is still important to recognize his contributions to the form. It is certainly true that Degas’ work will remain magnificent and notable. In other words, it is worth noting its technical as well as its emotional beauty.
