The schoolgirl DE07 - Edgar Degas

Height figurine 17 cm. Perhaps it was due to his visual handicap that, later in life, wax modelling appealed to Degas so strongly. His motto was ”Le dessin n’est pas la forme, c’est la manière de la voi” (the design is not the form, but the method of viewing). This definitely applies to ‘The Schoolgirl’ with her half shy, half saucy walk.

Degas idiosyncratic sculptures exist outside the 19th-century French sculptural tradition. With the exception of the, now famous, Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer, Degas never exhibited any of his sculptures. After his death, over 150 wax sculptures were found at his studio. Some were rough studies, but many were very refined. Perhaps it was due to his visual handicap that, later in life, wax modelling appealed to Degas so strongly. His motto was ”Le dessin n’est pas la forme, c’est la manière de la voi” (the design is not the form, but the method of viewing). This definitely applies to ‘The Schoolgirl’ with her half shy, half saucy walk.
