Fascinating look into the making of this sculpture and the societal thinking of the time.

Thanks for sharing it.

Hi, Rosalie, Celeste, and Jeanette. I "get to" look at these after the kids are in bed and the day winds down. I enjoyed another set of vids @ Degas on out flat screen, but now it has been taken down. See these before the Beeb changes its mind - LOL.

Now, I am plowing through the van Gogh series about the sunflowers, but am not learning quite as much. Either I know too much about VG, or this series on the petite ballerina is just so incredibly full of new info. I mean, ferrules in the arms? Too cool.
