That sculpture by Degas!

  1. Oh! This is a favorite of mine! La petit rat, “La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans” (Little Dancer of Fourteen Years). Studying Degas’ ballerinas, however, there was a sadly dark undercurrent associated with the times. This particular artwork was even strongly criticized during its early displays as glorifying the vices associated with surviving as a petit rat. But for me, knowing this simply makes it all the more impressive of a work… she remains still powerful and beautiful!
