Grande Arabesque Statue by Degas Musee d'Orsay, Paris. Degas, the gentleman artist, was absolutely fascinated by the ballet girls of the Paris Opera. They gave him the opportunity study and sketch movement which he was also delighted to see in the race horses at Longchamp and the body positions which he observed in working or bathing women. The balanced and spatial study of the Grand Arabesque seemed to particularly interest him . The Grand Arabesque was cast in bronze after his death. The roughness of style to be observed in all of his later works resulted from failing eyesight and from his desire to capture the essential position of the movement rather than to produce with a refinement of detail. This one is had made with pride by Statue.com artisan. Is hand signed and numbered. Made with pride in the USA.
