Two Dancers

Edgar Degas French

Not on view

Marie van Goethem, who posed for Degas's sculpture The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer, was the model for these two fine studies of a dancer adjusting her shoulder strap. Degas often used commercially coated paper for his drawings of dancers; this sheet retains its original color.
