Product Description:
Little Dancer Aged 14 Video (VHS/DVD). Enigmatic and remote, yet very much present and perhaps all too real: that is the Little Dancer Aged 14, by Degas. Beginning with information on the artistís life, this program brings to light the genesis of Degasí immortal wax sculpture, background on the unusual model who posed for it, and the uproar the piece caused at its debut, where it stood at stark odds with the ideas of feminine beauty then in vogue. Illustrations of studies, both nude and clothed, that Degas drew for it; high-tech forensic analysis of it; and a peek into the seamy side of the world of ballet in 19th-century Paris provide additional insights. A BBCW Production. (50 minutes).
