Description: Despite its international celebrity, "Little Dancer Aged Fourteen" remains an enigmatic object whose origin in Degass larger creative practice has rarely been analyzed. While this work is a remarkable technical achievement for an untrained sculptor, new research reveals that it also emerged from profoundly original thinking about perception and visual experience. As Richard Kendall explains, Degas proved to be among the most innovative individuals of his age, anticipating the achievements of photography and film, and even the multidimensional art of our own times.
