Our Inspiration:Arabesque Devant

Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917)
Bronze; modeled probably ca. 1883–88, cast 1920
H. O. Havemeyer Collection, Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929   29.100.400

After Edgar Degas’s death in 1917, over 150 figurative sculptures made of fragile wax, clay, and plastiline (a wax- and oil-based modeling material) were found in his studio. Almost none of them had been publicly exhibited during the artist’s lifetime. In order to preserve the compositions and sell them as finished works, Degas’s heirs authorized 72 to be cast in bronze. Only 22 editions of the series were cast, with the first and best
casts, or Edition A, reserved for the Impressionist collector Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer. In 1929, Mrs. Havemeyer bequeathed 70 of the 72 bronzes to The Met.
