Degas statue replica of a Bather Woman in a Round Tub. The young woman appears to be at ease taking a respite from her daily life in this intimate, timeless rendition. Her body is half submerged in water as she stretches out one arm to wash her foot.
The size of this statue replica is like a personal paperweight. It would look lovely as an accent on a dresser or makeup area where a woman's time is her own.
-- I like how the statue has a square base and a moderate height at 3 inches. While sitting at my desk, I have a graceful angle view over it which enhances my connection to her. Nina, Curator

ABOUT EDGAR DEGAS: Together with Monet the founder of French Impressionism, Edgar Degas (1834-1917)) was famous for his innovative compositions in his paintings and later in his sculptures. Although sometimes associated with Impressionism, his artwork has an unidealized quality which at times, more closely associates him with Realism. Degas created a tremendous amount of artworks. For an example, just with his ballerina images and sculptures, the surviving artworks total more than 1,500 plus in various stages of development (sketches, prints, monotypes, paintings, drawings and sculptures). For 10 years he sketched the young women training and then reused the sketches for new artworks during the next 40 years. The early rehearsal scenes were done in oil; and in 1878, he started using pastels for his dancers, nudes and horse-track scenes.
